Canada’s must-attend Open Banking event returns for a fifth year to influence the roadmap and get deals done

Open Banking in Canada is underway, with a Made in Canada framework starting to take shape. Following the delivery of the Final Report of the Advisory Committee, practitioners are beginning to build the initial tranche of products and services, and the working groups continue to provide insight and guidance around critical questions of privacy, security, accreditation, and liability.

However, open questions remain: how far can we progress after a slow start to implementation? Do we expect to be further hamstrung by roadblocks in regulations? Will the banks embrace a truly open environment? Is there any real money to be made this year? Which model of governance will work for Canadian financial services? And have we all even agreed on what ‘true’ Open Banking will look like going forwards?

Join us in June to unpick these crucial questions and truly move the dial in anticipation of the roadmap announcement.
