Database of audit-related information


An accountancy faculty is looking for audit-related information in the form of a searchable database that would allow him to identify for instance who signed the audit report for company X or Y. Some audit information is available through SEDAR but the information there is only available as pdf files, not as a searchable database.

An example of the type of resource he is looking for is Audit analytics (http://www.auditanalytics.com/0002/ ) . Obviously the researcher is aware of such commercial databases, but we would like to double check that there is publicly available alternative to the likes of Audit Analytics.


Statistics Canada doesn't have this or any comparable audit-related information like this on the Statistics Canada website or in any of our other public products.
