Largest lending summit in Canada kicks off Nov. 16

Leading voices from across the wide spectrum of the lending industry in Canada will
gather for the sector’s largest event of the year at the Canadian Lenders Summit in
Toronto Nov. 16.

Join over 450 fintech lenders, banks, credit unions, tech vendors, portfolio providers and
government leaders for the day-long conference that will explore challenges,
innovations, best practices and the path forward for a stronger future in the Canadian
lending sector.

The conference, organized by the Canadian Lenders Association, will gather high level
representatives from industry, government and media to discuss a wide range of topics
important to the sector, including the improvements to be realized by embracing
innovation, technology and fintech, the impact of the last two years of Covid on the
lending landscape, balancing efficiency and accuracy in assessing fraud and credit risk,
and service/technology changes that are and must be embraced as the lending sector
evolves and improves.

“Anyone associated with the lending space in Canada will want to be present for this
leading, up to the moment, discussion and assessment of our sector,” says CLA
president Gary Schwartz, who will kick off the conference with a morning address. “The
moderators and panelists we have assembled for the sessions will ensure a fascinating
and comprehensive look at where we are at and where we are going.”

Equally important, adds Schwartz, is the casual time built into the program where
participants can share information and exchange ideas themselves.

The program runs from 7:30 am to 6 pm Nov. 16 at the MaRS Discovery District at 101
College Street in Toronto.
