Open banking is the future of the financial services and FinTech ecosystem in Canada. In the past few years, we have seen many countries adopt an open banking infrastructure and now, Canada is reviewing our options to become the next country to implement such a system. Like any great change, adopting open banking will create changes and benefits for all players in the ecosystem including FinTech startups, investors, financial institutions, regulators and more. In this 1-hour panel event, we will discuss the merits of open banking, how it will impact our ecosystem and give perspective on the opportunities and potential challenges that may arise from this change.
