Promoting innovation in Ontario’s financial services sector

February 9, 2015

Making sure Canada's largest financial services cluster has access to the most innovative technologies for addressing current business and industry challenges is the aim of a new partnership between Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE) and the Toronto Financial Services Alliance (TFSA).

A Financial Innovation Collaboration Forum, to be held on Feb. 26 and hosted by OCE and TFSA, will bring financial institutions together with leading researchers and technology start-ups in areas related to data analytics, cybersecurity, fraud prevention and fintech.

Connecting financial companies and institutions with Ontario’s innovation ecosystem including its academic community and technology companies will help find made-in-Ontario solutions for industry challenges and create opportunities for addressing current and future issues.

At this by-invitation-only event participants will hear from representatives of major financial institutions in a panel session as well as leading researchers, disruptive start-up companies, and Toronto’s fin-tech incubators.  
  
Researchers and emerging companies are invited to apply to attend the forum. An official invitation will be extended to those who qualify.
