Call for Member Advisory Council Nominations

Published: May 9, 2019

Payments Canada is now accepting nominations for 2019 appointments to the Member Advisory Council (MAC).

Payments Canada is seeking representatives to its Member Advisor Council to contribute knowledge, expertise and perspectives. Nomination deadline is May 25, 2019.

The Member Advisory Council, a statutory body created under the Canadian Payments Act, is broadly representative of Payments Canada’s membership. The Council’s purpose is to provide counsel and advice to management and the Payments Canada Board of Directors on Payments Canada’s operation of clearing and settlement systems, and the interaction of those systems with other related systems, including Payments Canada’s Modernization initiative.

The Member Advisory Council is key to Modernization consultation and engagement process. Representatives on the Council will meet a minimum of three times per year, to discuss, debate and provide advice to Payments Canada’s management team and its board on significant elements of the Modernization program. Council members provide insight by articulating the member interests that they are appointed to represent, while also taking into account the objectives of Payments Canada in support of the overall payments system.
