Canada FinTech Week attracts over 2,800 attendees for more than 10 unique FinTech-themed events over the span of one week in Toronto.

6th Annual FinTech Canada conference

The FinTech & AI Award Gala Dinner, now in its 6th year, recognizes and celebrates Canadian innovation and innovators from coast to coast to coast.

Canadian FinTech & AI Awards

In 2015, we launched and produced, FinTech Canada to promote Canadian innovation in financial services and to provide a national stage to explore, learn, share and network together to support the development of Canadian innovation and entrepreneurial talent. The FinTech Canada Conference, together with our Annual Canadian FinTech & AI Awards, promote Canada as a FinTech centre of excellence and drives investment into the country.

A packed house at MaRS for the 4th FinTech Canada conference organized by the Digital Finance Institute. Thank you to my fellow panellists there. It was a really insightful session.
Spent the day Thursday in a room full of FinTech focused colleagues being inspired by Peggy Van de Plassche, Terry Hickey and Eric Gales at the 4th annual Fintech Canada Conference Digital Finance Institute!
Interesting presentation by Ellis Odynn. A captivating live experience demonstrated to the audience on how machines are suited for some patterns recognizing tasks that humans miss to visualize instantly.
When asked about how standards might affect the adoption of blockchain technologies, Alan Wunsche, CPA, CA said: “As soon as we get standards there’s no doubt in my mind, which will take still a couple of years from now, but you know this space is going to move so rapidly in the next five years. We will have globally recognized standards that the regulators will then be able to say if you abide by that particular standard that works for us.” While speaking at the FinTech Canada Conference. We were a proud sponsor of this informative, interactive and engaging event!
A great session on ICOS and Blockchain on regulations, not stifling innovation in Canada, and buyer & seller beware.
Super excited to hear from The Future of Banking Panelists from MasterCard, CIBC, Rogers, Wells Fargo at FinTech Canada. Grab your seats.
