The Canadian prepaid market is exploding with a variety of prepaid card types and applications, with more than 236 million prepaid transactions taking place in 2016 alone.

A few weeks ago, I attended the Canadian Prepaid Providers Organization’s (CPPO) first-ever Prepaid Symposium. The symposium brought together stakeholders from across the United States and Canada to discuss the current and future state of the prepaid card industry in North America. As a New York-based representative of the Center for Financial Services Innovation (CFSI), I joined a panel of other U.S. representatives to discuss promising prepaid innovations south of the border.

As someone who was involved in the formation of the Network Branded Prepaid Card Association (NBPCA) in the U.S., it was a real pleasure to be present at the inaugural symposium of the Canadian Prepaid Providers Organization on May 23. It is exciting to watch the prepaid card market develop in Canada. Both the differences and the similarities between the Canadian and U.S. markets will make it interesting to compare and contrast how prepaid cards evolve in the two places.

The Canadian Prepaid Providers Organization (CPPO), the leading voice of the prepaid industry in Canada, hosted a one-day symposium in May to discuss the changing nature of the Canadian prepaid market.
