The Government of Canada announced a target date of January 2023 to operationalize a hybrid, made-in-Canada open banking system. How is the industry going to pursue its implementation? And how will consumers continue to be protected?
The two-day virtual Open Banking Expo Canada explored these vital questions with a series of panel discussions and debates. Symcor, a sponsor of the Expo, participated in the first panel debate of the conference: Consumer-Directed Finance – Shaping Canada’s Fintech Future. Symcor’s Head of New Product Development & Corporate Strategy, Saba Shariff, participated in the panel discussion along with experts from RBC, Citi, and National Bank of Canada.
Following a keynote by Former Finance Minister of Canada, Bill Morneau, the panel featuring Symcor commenced at 9:30 a.m. EST on November 23, 2021.
