Our Conference

The Payments Canada SUMMIT conference is where the payment ecosystem gathers, bringing together a diverse sector to serve the payment needs of Canadians. It is a forum for broad conversations and deep discussions that explore a wide range of topics central to the future of payments. We come together to empower a new era of modern payments, where a robust and vibrant economy thrives.

The success of the 2022 event would not have been possible without the support and engagement of the entire payment ecosystem, which united in the virtual environment to keep the discussions on payment innovation alive.

We look forward to seeing everyone in person at The 2023 SUMMIT from May 3-5, in Toronto. Details about next year’s event will be shared later this year. Subscribe to The SUMMIT newsletter — your source for exclusive updates on Canada’s premier payment event.
