Designing the Next Stage of the Global Accrual Journey


The 2019 Public Sector Standard Setters Forum provides a vehicle for public sector accounting standard setters to discuss critical standard-setting issues. Aiming to promote dialogue and exchange ideas, the Forum helps build relationships with, and between national standard setters and the International Public Sector Accounting Standards Board (IPSASB).


June 24-25, 2019

Registration and opening Reception will be on June 23


Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario

Queen’s Landing/155 Byron Street


The Forum was an excellent opportunity for participants to meet IPSASB members and other experts from around the world, discuss issues that are commonly faced and get ideas of how these might be dealt with in the country of our origin.
