The Canadian FinTech & AI Awards were started in 2015 by the Digital Finance Institute to recognize and celebrate Canadian innovation in financial technology and more recently, in artificial intelligence. The goal of the Awards is to bring together, on an annual basis, Canada’s technology leaders in finance to celebrate each other and support Canadian technology in finance from coast to coast to coast.

“We started the Awards to bring the innovation ecosystem together from across Canada in all areas that touch finance to recognize and support Canadian innovation and innovators three years ago, and we are so pleased with the incredible support and growth of the Annual Gala Awards Dinner,” said Christine Duhaime, the founder of the Institute. “It sends a signal that Canada is here to continue to lead in innovation in financial services.”
