Walk the Walk: Ethics in Integrity, Business Culture & Decision-Making

Jennifer Tang, Senior Manager in the Complex Accounting & Disruptive Events Advisory, Deloitte LLP

The Business Case – Industry practitioners can certainly “talk the talk” when it comes to their stance on ethics. But when push really comes to shove, multiple perspectives and interpretations often lead to grey areas, especially when jobs and money are on the line. Now add poor commodity pricing, a pandemic and a struggling economy into the mix.

So What? In today’s business environment, the topics of ethics and fraud are becoming increasingly important. CPA Canada has even recently mandated its designated accountants to fulfill professional development hours toward ethics. Join PASC as we host Deloitte’s Jennifer Tang at our Education Day online conference on September 15th and 16th 2020.

Data Analytics Panel Discussion - The Robots are Coming & What it Means.
Kody Carroll, President, Integrity Audit & Accounting Ltd.

Daniel Chan, CPA, CMA, Manager R&D / Business Development at EnergyLink

Terry Solomon, CPA, CMA, BBA

The New Horizon – Robotic process automation is a method of software robotics allowing for enhanced business/data analytics through artificial intelligence and machine learning. As far-fetched as it may sound, all energy companies are currently employing some form of RPA to handle repeatable, mundane tasks such as queries, transactions and record-keeping.

How to Adapt? Join PASC on September 15th as we host a panel for our online Education Day conference to define RPA, provide real-life examples and identify opportunities to better analyze corporate data. Our speakers will discuss the path forward and how automation can help support industry professionals and not necessarily replace them.

ESG - How Did a Measuremt of Sustainabilty Become Exclusionary to Canadian Oil & Gas?

Cam Bailey, Senior Executive & former CEO of High Arctic Energy Services

The Challenge – The fossil fuel industry has seen diverted investment to the tune of $14.1 trillion. ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) Metrics are intended to encourage investors to deploy funds to industry by measuring company risk ratings, but there are challenges to the reliability of ESG rating agencies results and failures to get agreement on metrics.

The Opportunity – Cam Bailey proposes an alternative approach to funding by using “Alberta Green Bonds” to solve the current exclusions of Canadian energy companies.

 

September 16, 2020 12:30 pm  - 4:30 pm 

Pros in the Trenches: The New Carbon Pricing Environment in Alberta (Panel Discussion)

 David Crawford, RSM Canada,  Partner Indirect Tax

Dan Beauchamp, Commodity Tax Manager, Imperial Oil Canada

Greg Perrin, Director of Indirect Tax, Suncor

Lesley Meredith, CPA CMA Manager, Indirect Tax, AltaGas Ltd.

The Situation – In the past five years, Alberta has transitioned from its previous carbon levy regime, to no regime and back to a hybrid system (Ottawa’s carbon tax) involving the federal fuel charge and the new Alberta carbon pricing on emissions known as TIER or the Technology Innovation and Emissions Reduction legislation.

What Now? Join PASC as we host RSM’s David Crawford, Greg Perrin of Suncor and Dan Beauchamp from IOL for a panel discussion on September 16th. As professional tax practitioners in Upstream/E&P as well as Pipelines & Transportation, Gas Processing & Marketing and Gas Liquids Production & Sales, they can provide us an overview of our changing journey with carbon pricing and what lies ahead.

Pierre Poilievre & the Trillion Dollar Question

Honorable Pierre Poilievre, Opposition Finance Critic

Great Expectations – Proponents for the energy sector will undoubtedly endeavor for greater prosperity from the unleashing of free enterprise and a strong economic recovery following COVID-19 and the volatility of oil. However, this may continue to be challenging, especially with looming debt from the pandemic response and decreased industry support both from a social and fiscal perspective.

Change Champion – Honorable Pierre Poilievre, Member of Parliament, will provide his perspectives and attempt to tackle the “Trillion Dollar Question” posed by Canadians. As the Current Opposition Finance Critic, Mr. Poilievre was elected six times to Parliament, is a strong supporter for Canadian energy, and believes in a fair deal for Alberta. Join PASC as we host Mr. Poilievre for our Education Day Online conference on September 16th.
