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

The council provides advice to our board of directors on payments, clearing and settlement matters. The council also contributes input on proposed initiatives, helping us make informed decisions on key elements of the payments Modernization program, as well as ongoing operations, policies and initiatives. Moreover, as the payments ecosystem continues to evolve, being a member of the council provides an opportunity to contribute directly to shaping the future of payments in Canada.

Who is a Payments Canada stakeholder?

Our Stakeholder Advisory Council encompasses the views of Payments Canada’s broad and diverse stakeholder base, including consumers, retailers, large corporates, small & medium enterprises, vendors, payment service providers, government & educational institutions, fintechs and new entrants. The council believes that diversity fosters excellence in governance and aims to reflect a broad range of experiences and perspectives.
