How We Collaborate

Payments Canada convenes and collaborates with the Canadian payments ecosystem and with our international counterparts. We conduct regular public consultations, formally and informally, with our system participants and stakeholders. 

Consultation with system participants and stakeholders is an important part of the rule development process, particularly when dealing with new payment methods and technologies. This can include webinars, written documents, “town-hall” sessions, and individual meetings with key user groups.
