Organisers of Open Banking Expo Canada return on Thursday September 28th with its quarterly meetup to discuss the recommendations published in the final report from the Government of Canada’s Advisory Committee on Open Banking.
This is the second free-to-attend quarterly meetup for the Open Banking community in Canada. The first meetup attracted more than 200 registrations from executives across the financial services and fintech space in June 2020.
The latest Government report will be the key theme for the event, which includes a panel debate to discuss the findings, recommendations and what it will mean for the sector.
Andrew Moor, President & Chief Executive Officer, Equitable Bank
Senator Colin Deacon, Independent Senator, Senate of Canada
Michelle Beyo, Board Member, Open Banking Initiative Canada
Stéphane Bousquet, Leader, Open Banking, National Bank of Canada
Sue Britton, Chief Executive Officer & Founder, FinTech Growth Syndicate

The debate will be followed by a session for the virtual audience to come together and discuss the findings, their concerns, the opportunities and what direction they may take. A final session will take a global focus in which speakers will look at Brazil and the Middle East; regions that continue to embrace and deliver on an Open Banking promise.
Open Banking Expo Canada teamed up with Ernst & Young LLP (EY Canada) to launch quarterly meetups to help shed light on unforeseen disruptors, emerging technologies and changing consumer preferences.
The meetups foster an environment for innovators, disruptors and visionaries in the pursuit of consumer-directed finance to share common goals, spark debate and spur innovation. Professionals across the financial services ecosystem, including banks, credit unions, fintechs, regulators and BigTechs, are invited to register.
