The annual CPPO Prepaid Symposium is the premier event for the Canadian prepaid industry that is fueling the transformation to a true digital banking and payments ecosystem. The well-established thought leadership and networking event is attended by local and global leaders in fintech, banking, payments and government. It is the once a year meeting-of-the minds to discuss critical issues for the industry and for new entrants to learn about market opportunities.
