Topic:  Payment System Review Task Force Update

Formally announced on June 18, 2010 by the Minister of Finance, the Task Force for the Payments System Review will spend the next year looking at the Canadian payments system with the goal of articulating key recommendations to help guide the future of this important system.

The mandate of the work is broad, and the potential impact for Canadians is significant.

The task force is to:

  • Identify public policy objectives to be pursued in the operation and regulation of the payments system;
  • Identify and assess the regulatory and institutional structures best suited to achieving these public policy objectives;
  • Assess and report on the safety and soundness of the Canadian payments system;
  • Assess the competitive landscape by identifying any potential barriers for new entrants and mechanisms to improve the competitive landscape of the domestic payments system;
  • Assess the degree of innovation in the domestic payments system and report on the challenges and opportunities to bring new and innovative products to market in Canada; and
  • Assess and report on whether consumers and merchants are well served by the domestic payments system.
