We’ve been working with the government to implement a retail payments oversight framework, put Canadians in control of their financial data with “open banking,” build Canada’s new real-time payment system, expand access to payment systems, reduce transaction fees for merchants, reform competition laws, and review the financial sector legislative framework to manage the risks posed by crypto and stablecoins.
