Management’s Discussion and Analysis
Management’s Discussion and Analysis provides principles and a framework to help preparers identify and organize appropriate information for their MD&A disclosures, emphasizing aspects of existing regulation and, in places, adding dimensions that go beyond existing regulation. The framework provides a structure for preparing a fact-based disclosure document that gives a reader the ability to look at the issuer “through the eyes of management”.
The CPA Canada Standards and Guidance Collection is also available on DVD and as a web-based collection. Updated with each CPA Canada Handbook release.
*Note: As of November 1, 2013, the title of the CICA Standards and Guidance Collection has been changed to CPA Canada Standards and Guidance Collection. Print publications may contain the previous title until updated versions are released.
