Our accounts include the accounts of Oncolytics Biotech Inc. and our subsidiaries. Subsidiaries are entities over which we have control which is achieved when we are exposed, or have the rights, to variable returns from our involvement with the investee and has the ability to affect those returns through our power to govern. Accounting policies of subsidiaries are consistent with our accounting policies and all intra-group transactions, balances, income and expenses are eliminated on consolidation.
A change in ownership interest of a subsidiary, without a change in control, is accounted for as an equity transaction.
