This year’s themes are regulation, adoption, monetization, architecture and the Open Future.

Adam Cox, co-founder and managing director at Open Banking Expo, said: “We’re excited to reveal the first 30 speakers joining us for Open Banking Expo Canada on June 15.

“This year, our speaker line-up represents the very best of Canada’s Open Banking ecosystem, with representatives from Canadian banks, fintechs and credit unions, as well as government. As Canada prepares for the release of its Open Banking roadmap later this year, our speakers will be convening in Toronto to debate and discuss critical questions of privacy, security, accreditation, and liability.”

At the Canada Expo in November 2022, attendees heard from speakers representing EQ Bank, Tangerine Bank, BMO Financial Group, CGI, Symcor and CIBC during the opening Powerhouse Panel Debate on ‘Unleashing Open Banking on the financial services industry’.

After the conference this year, speakers and delegates are invited to join Open Banking Expo for a Gala Dinner to discuss the day’s learnings over dinner and drinks.
