    The Canadian Standards for Quality Control (CSQC1) have replaced the Canadian Standard for Quality Management (CSQM1 and CSQM2) and related amendments to relevant assurance standards.  For firms that perform assurance engagements, the quality management systems are required to be implemented by December 15, 2022. 

    This course will assist you in identifying and documenting the firm’s quality objectives, the identification and assessment of common risks to meeting these objectives, and the design and implementation of the firm’s response to these risks.   The course will refer to CPA Canada’s Quality Management Subscription as an example template to assist practitioners in documenting the firm’s processes and policies.

    This professional development course provides a brief overview of the newly issued Canadian Standard for Quality Management (CSQM1 and CSQM2) requirements.  The course will provide examples of common quality control objectives, risks, and responses for small to mid-size firms and provide you with the opportunity to tailor these to your firm’s specific circumstances.
