Aro Workshop Series 2022

In 2018, the Public Sector Accounting Board approved the final Handbook Section PS 3280, Asset Retirement Obligations, which comes into effect April 1, 2022. The implementation of a new standard is complicated and time-consuming. The intention of this workshop series is to provide local government finance teams with access to technical and peer support throughout the implementation process.

This workshop series picks up from the 2020 Asset Retirement Obligations Workshop, which provided the foundation for the 2021 Asset Retirement Obligations Workshop Series The workshop series addressed the key elements of the implementation plan: scoping, measurement and financial statement presentation. As with past workshop and workshop series, this workshop provides an opportunity for attendees to leverage and learn from the shared experience of peers across the province.
