Formerly Titled: “Assurance Standards – Update 2018: Non-Auditors”

With increasing specialization in our profession some practitioners deal exclusively with audits and others do not perform any audit engagements. To address this specialization, this seminar will focus only on assurance areas Other than Audits.

This seminar is designed to review recent revisions to the CPA Canada Handbook– Assurance and other practice matters in the last year. The focus is on new and revised non-audit assurance and other related service standards issued, and provides an overview of projects in progress and other issues and developments of interest to practitioners, including issues identified by practice advisory and/or practice inspection.

This modular approach to the Assurance Update course allows participants to pick and choose their topics of interest and attend sessions that reflect their practice, but also allows them to be aware of all of the changes in assurance by attending both sessions.

Assurance Update 2019 - Other Than Audits: this session will address practice issues under CSRE 2400, the proposed new Canadian Standard on Related Services (CSRS) 4200 Compilation Engagements and current practice issues for compilation engagements.


By the end of Other than Audits, participants will:

  • Be able to identify deficiencies and common application issues for review engagements under CSRE 2400 and compilation engagements and remedy such deficiencies;
  • Understand the changes for compilations engagements under proposed CSRS 4200; and
  • Be aware of and locate tools to assist with review and compilation engagements.


  • Practice inspection deficiencies and remedies applicable to CSRE 2400
  • Proposed CSRS 4200 Compilation Engagements
  • Practice matters, including practice inspection findings and practice advisory comments on current compilations
