On Dialogue: Our Discussion Documents


The Way We Pay: Transforming the Canadian Payments System

Our discussion document, The Way We Pay: Transforming the Canadian Payments System, described the evolution of the Task Force’s thinking in the first eight months of its mandate. It elaborated on fundamental challenges facing the industry, and articulated an initial set of principles we have since developed and refined. It also carved out the elements of a proposed Governance Framework to serve as an initial map.

The Way We Pay is rooted in insights gained through our first round of online submissions, the Scenarios Roundtable, and countless one-on-one meetings, and became the basis of our second round of online consultations in the summer of 2011. Comments and feedback to this work were valuable in developing the actionable recommendations demanded of our mandate.
