Join CCNMatthews for the Third Annual XBRL Canada Conference, "Better Government Reporting"

XBRL for the Public Sector Ottawa - February 13-14, 2007

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 17, 2007) - This conference is free of charge, and is designed to help those in the public sector learn more about XBRL and the adoption of XBRL in the public sector. The conference will conclude with the presentation and discussion of a proposal concerning the Canadian Taxonomy Project, the goal of which is to significantly reduce the cost of government filings for Canadian business.

This third annual XBRL Canada conference is hosted by XBRL Canada, the Canadian jurisdiction of XBRL International, a consortium with over 480 member organizations worldwide working together to develop XBRL and facilitate its adoption. You can read more at www.xbrl.org and www.xbrl.ca.

Who should attend?

Anyone who needs to file reports with the government and government officials who are charged with the responsibility for receiving and processing such reports and who are involved with designing and operating the related systems. If you are interested in helping to bring about filing systems that will reduce the cost of filings, in electronic filing, in improving internal reporting in the public sector or in the advances made by XBRL, you should attend.

Why attend?

XBRL has established itself as the global standard for improving the transparency of external financial reporting, the standard that will revolutionize internal reporting, and the standard to which regulators and government agencies around the world are turning to improve reporting quality and efficiency.
