As part of the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) staff analysis on the adoption of IFRS in Canada, a survey of dealers was undertaken in early 2009 "to gauge the dealer membership's awareness and understanding of IFRS and to determine the impact of the implementation of IFRS compared to current regulatory reporting of the dealer member's business." Today, IIROC published a rules notice releasing the results of the survey as well as IIROC staff's recommendation that IFRS be adopted by all dealer members. Exemptions from specific accounting standards, however, are recommended, including exemptions from: (i) certain specific note disclosure requirements; (ii) the production of comparative financial data for the first IFRS financial statements; and (iii) the valuation of receivables and payables. Comments on the notice are being accepted by IIROC until September 14, 2009.
