How our Member Advisory Council helps shape the future of payments in Canada

The 20 person council provides advice to Payments Canada’s management team and Board of Directors on key elements of the future of payments, including Canada's Modernization program, and ongoing operations, policies and initiatives dealing with Canada’s clearing and settlement systems; the interaction of those systems with other systems involved in the exchange, clearing or settlement of payments and the development of new technologies.  

Who is eligible to be part of the Member Advisory Council? 

Our Member Advisory Council consists of individuals who represent the interests of member financial institutions that directly or indirectly participate in at least one of Canada’s payments systems, or who are due-paying members of Payments Canada.  

Payments Canada’s broad 110 member base includes direct clearers, group clearers and indirect clearers. When nominating a representative, Payments Canada encourages member organizations to review the *eligibility guidelines.
