IIA Canada’s 7th Annual National Conference

In a time of rapid change, where trust in corporate and public leadership is faltering and new and complex risks are emerging, internal audit can add exceptional value. But are we ready? Do we have what it takes — in terms of leadership, governance, practices, and personal courage — to step up and into this role?

The theme of the 7th Annual National Conference of IIA Canada is Rising to New Challenges. As the premier learning and networking event dedicated to internal audit, risk, control and governance, this event draws speakers at the forefront of our profession.

Rick Hillier, former Chief of the Defence Staff of the Canadian Forces and Commander of NATO Troops in Afghanistan, will speak about leadership under pressure. Richard Chambers, CIA, CGAP, CCSA, CRMA, President and CEO of The IIA, will speak about the future of the internal audit profession, and Carman Lapointe, CIA, CCSA, United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Internal Oversight Services, will speak about internal audit and oversight in a complex political environment.

Respected audit leaders will lead general and concurrent sessions that focus on:

  • Strategically positioning the Internal Audit Function
  • Enhancing Internal Audit Effectiveness
  • Information Management / Technology
  • A Fresh Look at Value Ethics and Fraud
  • Auditing in the Public Sector
  • The Modern Auditor: Leader and Agent of Change
