Media Advisory/Announcing The XBRL Canada Conference Taking Place in Toronto, October 31 and November 1, 2005

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 26, 2005) - XBRL (eXtensible Business Reporting Language) Canada is proud to offer its Canadian conference "Enhancing Business Reporting - The XBRL Advantage" to promote the understanding and adoption of XBRL, the new standard for business reporting in Canada and beyond.

Delegates can choose to attend events on either day or both. The conference will be held in Toronto, over two days in two separate venues. Day one is only open to the financial services industry with a series of speakers discussing global adoption, regulatory reporting and reducing credit risk.

Day two will be more general and broader in scope. The luncheon seminar will address answers to the following questions: "Why should I care about XBRL?", "How is it going to change the way I work?", "When is this change going to happen?", and "What should I be doing now?".
