The COVID-19 pandemic has seen drastic changes to the performance of the Canadian economy, and dramatic shifts in consumer spending and payment habits. The rapid shift away from cash to contactless payments, and the substantial increase in online shopping, are set to become permanent features of the Canadian consumer payments scene, especially given the extension of the pandemic into 2021. But the planned rollout of a vaccine, which promises an end to the pandemic, is likely to see Canadians far more optimistic about their economic future than just one year ago.

Canadian Payments Forecast, 2021 provides detailed insights into how the unprecedented developments in the Canadian economy brought about by responses to the COVID-19 pandemic have affected consumer payments in Canada, and how this is likely to play out in the coming years in the context of new technologies, business models and fintechs that are instrumental in shaping this future.
