Company on the Move: Canadian Prepaid Providers Organization
Since launching a year ago, the Canadian Prepaid Providers Organization (CPPO) has made strides to educate and build awareness about the growing open-loop prepaid market in Canada. CPPO released three studies showing that consumers and businesses are adopting prepaid at a rapid pace, including: Canadian Open-Loop Prepaid Market 2015, How Canadians Pay Today and What Gifts Canadians Really Want.
During its first membership year, the CPPO established its direction by installing its board of directors, meeting with numerous third parties focused on payments in Canada, and presenting at the CPA Payments Panorama and ACT Canada Cardware conferences.
CPPO is supported by major financial institutions, card networks and other industry players in Canada. In 2016, the CPPO is accepting applications for general membership and plans to host educational and networking events for the industry in 2017. For more information, visit cppo.ca.
