The Promise of Payments Innovation

The promise of payments innovation is to create more convenient, efficient, secure, and inclusive payment methods that enhance the overall financial experience. ​

While significant progress has been made the vision is still evolving. ​Prepaid has paved the way for many significant improvements in payments convenience, value and inclusivity we have witnessed in Canada.  But has it been enough to say that payments innovation has lived up to its promises?​​

The 2024 CPPO Symposium will examine the critical role prepaid has played in achieving the vision for payments innovation and view how it has lived up to its promises through the lens of: ​

  • Merchants ​

  • Banks – neo and traditional ​

  • Tech partners and fintechs​

  • Consumers ​
