About this committee

In 2020, the Bank of Canada established the Retail Payments Advisory Committee (RPAC) to solicit advice and expertise from industry members of the retail payments ecosystem. The Retail Payment Activities Act received Royal Assent on June 29, 2021, and the Bank of Canada is looking for new members for RPAC.


Members will attend approximately six meetings over a 12-month period, where they will be able to:

  • discuss supervisory topics
  • share best practices
  • raise organizational or industry concerns
  • provide potential solutions


The Bank will choose RPAC members from a broad spectrum of the payments industry that represents different sizes, maturities and scopes. This will help the Bank gain advice and expertise from a representative selection of industry members. We invite payment service providers to submit an expression of interest to join RPAC for the upcoming term.

Deadline for submissions

Submissions will be accepted until August 13, 2021. The Bank will contact the entities selected for further information.
