Key Highlights

- Canada is poised for progress on technological fronts such as m-payments. Its approach has been to make m-payments capability ubiquitous, recognizing that consumers will benefit. Already pressing ahead with the adoption of EMV technology, and with the growing presence of contactless payments, key infrastructure is already in place. In this context, m-payments will form a natural extension of the established infrastructure, offering speed, security and convenience to consumers. With the anticipated launch of Apple Pay in November 2015, it is likely that innovation and competition will be encouraged in the Canadian cards and payments industry.

- Changes are anticipated in the credit cards market over the forecast period (2014–2019), due to government intervention to regulate the market. The intervention aims to reduce the cost of credit card acceptance for merchants, to keep prices affordable for consumers.

- In November 2014, Visa and MasterCard agreed to reduce the interchange fee on credit card purchases, and limit the amount charged retailers to process transactions to 1.5% of the transaction value. The new rate will apply from April 30, 2015, and will remain unchanged for five years.
