The Event 

Modernizing Payment Systems: A vital step to strengthen Canada’s global competitiveness | October 3, 2018 at 8:00AM

More than ever, Canada is being looked to as a dynamic economy with world-class infrastructure, talent, and leading-edge research and development.

In an effort to strengthen Canada's global competitiveness, Payments Canada is leading a payments modernization initiative that aims to transform our country's payments infrastructure and act as a catalyst for innovation.

Come hear from Jan Pilbauer, Payments Canada's Executive Director Modernization and CIO, as he shares the gateway of possibilities that modernized payments will enable and how this transformation will positively impact our country's reputation for financial services — particularly commercial and commerce activity between Canada and Asia and Vancouver's position as a gateway in those payments interactions.

More importantly, learn how you can start to take advantage of payments modernization to benefit your organization, customers and stakeholders and become a part of our country's journey. Together, we have the opportunity to strengthen B.C. and Canada's overall competitive position as a global leader.

Format: Presentation & Q&A

“The MI of tomorrow”

With new technologies emerging nearly as rapidly as consumer and commercial customer behaviours are changing, the digital age brings a number of challenges for market infrastructures. How will MIs compete in the evolving landscape against agile competitors like FinTechs, PSPs, credit card companies, and payment solution vendors? Will they turn to technology upgrades, aim to positively influence regulation, or begin to operate in new territories by providing new product offerings that compete with other players across the ecosystem?
