As was expected and announced in the 2021 federal budget, Bill C-30 introduces a draft of the long-awaited Retail Payments Activities Act (RPAA). While there may be some unexpected issues with the implementing regulations, much can be gleaned from a review of the provisions of the RPAA as drafted.
Join Blakes Financial Services Regulatory lawyers as we discuss how the new regulatory payments regime, to be regulated by the Bank of Canada, is groundbreaking in that it provides for the first regulatory scheme for retail payment providers in Canada.
