Terms of Reference
FinPay (or the Committee) is a forum of public and private sector representatives that will discuss industry level developments in the Canadian payments system.
- Advise Finance Canada on developments related to public policy aspects of payments issues (e.g. competition, innovation, safety, user needs or consumer protection); and
- Discuss approaches for dealing with emerging and ongoing challenges/opportunities in the payments system.
- Inform Government policy-making about the Canadian payments system.
Working groups may be established under FinPay as appropriate to further these objectives.
FinPay will be chaired by the General Director, Financial Sector Policy Branch, Finance Canada.
Membership of FinPay will be determined by Finance Canada and include stakeholders from the public and private sectors, representing established payments industry players, newer entrants, corporate users, merchants and consumers. There will be a mix of permanent and renewable term members. For permanent member organizations, individual representatives may change but members will seek to promote some continuity in their representation. For the renewable term positions, efforts will be made to stagger appointments so that annual turnover in membership will be no more than one third of the group.
The Committee may also draw from time to time on experts from the industry to inform the dialogue on select issues. Experts may be invited to meetings on an ad hoc basis.
Frequency of Meetings
FinPay will meet no less frequently than bi-annually. The frequency of meetings may be adjusted as necessary.
Proceedings and Documents
Finance Canada will be present at all Committee and any working group meetings and perform the secretariat duties for FinPay. Finance Canada will distribute meeting materials to members two weeks in advance of each meeting.
Minutes of meetings will be taken on a non-attribution basis and made available to all members. The recorded proceedings of this Committee could be subject to Access to Information requests.
Finance Canada will not ask members to share commercially sensitive information with the Committee, and will foreclose any discussions among members on this topic.
Following the first meeting, each meeting will begin with a tour de table. Members will be encouraged to raise issues that should be considered by the Committee at future meetings.
Members are invited to provide submissions, comments, etc. to Finance Canada at any time on payments-related issues.
