AFP-Ottawa Annual General Meeting and Special Guest Speaker

Topic: Blockchain and Project Jasper - What's New, What's Next?

In 2016, Project Jasper made headlines as the first known blockchain experiment to include a central bank and the private sector. Involving the Bank of Canada, Payments Canada, R3 and Canada’s seven largest commercial banks, the project seeks to understand how Distributed Ledger Technology might transform the future of payments—starting with high-value clearing and settlement. In this informative presentation, Payments Canada’s Andrew McCormack, a key member of the project’s leadership team, will share what’s new and what’s next.  

Special Guest Speaker:

Andrew McCormack

Senior Director, Technology, Payments Canada

Mr. McCormack has been a key part of the Project Jasper leadership team since the inception of the project in early 2016. Mr. McCormack holds an MBA from the Ivey Business School and a Bachelor of Computer Science from Carleton University.
