REFRESHMENTS & NETWORKING
Are you ready to take first mover advantage?
In a recent Open Banking survey undertaken by Accenture, it was reported that most Canadians aren’t yet interested in the benefits of Open Banking, although a closer analysis of the data shows that younger people are much keener to share their financial data in exchange for benefits.
“Banks, therefore, should act now to draw up a strategic plan and decide where in the broader Open Banking ecosystem they want to position themselves,” said Andrew McFarlane, Managing Director, Canadian Payments Practice Lead & Global Open Banking Lead.
We welcome Andrew to the stage, who will offer delegates a thought-provoking session which will challenge whether the industry is ready and sufficiently innovative to take first-mover advantage.

Fireside chat with Finance Canada
One year on from the Department of Finance’s consultation on the merits of Open Banking in the Canadian financial services sector, we welcome a Government representative to reveal its plans for implementation, data security and its stance on a potential Open Banking roadmap.
Credit Unions; top 3 benefits of Open Banking
The Canadian Credit Union Association (CCUA) participated in the Department of Finance’s 2019 consultation on the merits of Open Banking. It found that Canadian credit unions are supportive of the introduction of an Open Banking regulatory framework to benefit their members and Canada as a whole.
Top 3 benefits include:
- Modernisation; Open Banking could help reduce the costs of complying with the various regulations that exist
- Competition; An Open Banking framework creates competition, providing space for smaller outfits. It could therefore increase Canadians’ awareness of the credit union alternative.
- Digitization and Digital ID; Open Banking should be introduced in lockstep with or after the implementation of a cross-sectoral Digital ID system. Doing so will increase trust and better socialize and expose Open Banking to Canadians
Open Banking Expo welcomes CCUA’s chief executive officer to reveal their latest thinking and what members can do now to harness the opportunities Open Banking will create when it is given the go ahead.
