Queen’s School of Business Launches Canada’s First Research-Focused Centre for Governance

by Toby Lucich on March 20, 2007

Queen’s School of Business (QSB) today launched the CA-Queen’s Centre for Governance, a new initiative funded by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ontario to improve corporate governance in Canada through a variety of research and teaching programs. The Centre is the first in Canada to have as its primary mission research in the area of governance.

“The CA-Queen’s Centre for Governance is another example of how Queen’s School of Business is adding value to today’s corporate environment,” said David Saunders, Dean, Queen’s School of Business. “With our partners at the Institute, we look forward to raising the bar on corporate governance research and its implications for education in Canada.”

The Centre will fund Queen’s faculty and doctoral student research into Canadian and international corporate governance issues, especially those which relate to audit committees and financial reporting. The first research funded explores the state of internal controls at Canadian public companies, led by Queen’s Professor Steve Salterio, the Centre’s Academic Director, and Regan Schmidt, Queen’s PhD candidate. Preliminary results from this research reported last fall showed that 19 per cent of Canadian companies have been identified as having such deficiencies, underscoring the importance of the Centre’s mandate.
