  • Graham said it is “something to be proud of” that three of the world’s 20 largest banks reside in Canada and that it largely managed to avoid a finanical crisis in 2008. However, he added that but there is a gap with other countries because “we don’t have any fintech unicorns” (yet).

  • This could be because fintech adoption has been slower and that in terms of regulation Canada does have Open Banking or PSD2-style regimes.

  • Toronto has, however, created more high tech jobs than any other city in North America in the past year as well as more financial services jobs.
