Financial Institutions have been forced to pivot in 2020 in order to continue to safely deliver services to Canadians.

The risk profile for financial institutions has been shaken up by the push to digital and new remote work arrangements. The Canadian Institute’s 26th Annual Regulatory Compliance for Financial Institutions flagship program has been designed to provide your organization with clarity following this period of rapid adaptation.

It’s a critical juncture for compliance teams as they strive to ensure continuity across the three lines of defense and operationalize new and impending regulatory packages as they step into 2021.

Throughout the two-day program you hear from government regulators about their priorities moving into 2021. Industry leaders will share their insights on how to address leading compliance deficiencies, navigate ethical quandaries and build a strong culture of compliance.

This is your opportunity to gain knowledge about the regulatory landscape globally and build confidence into your approach to emerging risks in security and privacy, consumer protection and more!
