Inside the 2022 CPPO Prepaid Symposium: What to Expect

The growth of the Canadian open-loop prepaid market has cemented the case for prepaid moving far beyond just a card, and instead being a platform and an innovative rail in Canada’s digital payments and banking ecosystem. 

According to the Canadian Open Loop Prepaid Market, 2020-2025 analysis, there were approximately 46 million open-loop prepaid accounts in Canada by the end of 2020. It is expected that this will grow by a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15 per cent, reaching 93 million accounts by 2025. 

The 2022 CPPO Spring Prepaid Symposium will bring together leaders from across the Canadian payments ecosystem to detail what’s in store for the future of prepaid. The Symposium is set to be in-person this year on June 1, 2022 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. EDT at the Toronto Region Board of Trade. Join us to discuss how prepaid is impacting challenger banking, earned wage access, instant payments for corporates, BNPL, gig worker offerings, global payment trends and the Canadian regulatory environment.

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.

  • How the platform of choice for payments innovation is prepaid
