The Digital Finance Institute is pleased to release its report showcasing the 50 top women in FinTech in Canada. Five years ago, the Digital Finance Institute partnered with SWIFT Innotribe to publish the first white paper on women in FinTech and was a global trailblazer in starting the conversation about the inclusion of women in the rapidly growing financial technology sector.  The Institute also co-launched the popular FemTech Leaders series which highlighted the leadership and achievements of women in the FinTech & AI community globally, right here in Canada.

The top 50 women in this report were selected based on their leadership, vision, innovation, level of engagement, impact and their commitment to the FinTech community. The Institute conducted a Canada-wide study on the FinTech ecosystem, which included in-depth research with leaders in the financial technology sector to select the top 50 women.

The Institute has also launched the Scotiabank FemTech Leader of the Year Award to recognize a woman leader in FinTech at the 5thAnnual Canadian FinTech & AI Awards gala event in Toronto on November 18, 2019. The Institute is co-hosting a women in tech mentorship and networking event as part of the inaugural Canada FinTech Week taking place from August 12 to August 15, 2019 in Toronto.
