Join us for the 2nd Annual Open Banking Summit in Toronto. Network with Founders and CEOs of the largest lenders and fintechs in Canada.

While Canada has been grappling with open banking regulation, developed markets around the world have been deploying fintech innovations aggressively. How can Canada accelerate its fintech economy within the framework of open banking and how can the lending community engage with regulators today to achieve this?

April 2nd, Toronto.





Money movement through the lens of Open Banking

Open banking is enhancing every aspect of the lending cycle – from seamless bank verification to instant disbursements to on demand collections. We take a journey through a credit transaction and to understand where open banking is currently playing a role, and identify where gaps need to be filled.

Finding a Canadian model of success

Open banking has taken many forms in foreign markets. We address the advantages and setbacks an industry championed approach vs a top down government implementation. Can these two approaches be reconciled? Why does it even matter?
