The Toronto Centre is a not-for-profit organisation that promotes financial stability and access to financial services globally by building the capacity of financial sector regulators and supervisors, particularly in emerging markets and low income countries. We help them develop the leadership skills and financial sector knowledge they need to build strong, efficient regulatory and supervisory agencies. Programs examine topics including how to implement best supervisory practices and how to both prevent and prepare for crisis situations that could occur in individual financial institutions or in the financial sector as a whole. Well- regulated and well- functioning financial systems in turn contribute to a reduction in the incidence of poverty through more sustainable economic growth, job creation, and improved standards of living.

Our training programs are highly interactive and practical and are tailored to our participants’ needs. They are offered at an international, regional or country level. Read more.
