If a company has an option to use the ASPE method, why do you think the company would choose the IFRS instead?

I have not thoroughly researched IFRS to comment on pro's and con's vs US GAAP. I really can't comment on Canadian standards including ASPE. I would say that external factors can influence the decision to choose a reporting regime. Creditors can require that financials are prepared according to a particular set of standards. Also, the decision maker may believe that IFRS provides a higher profile/greater legitimacy to the company's financial information.
