Message from CEO

Dear friends, colleagues, and TC Associates, 

We had a very busy summer and we were very pleased to welcome over 100 supervisors and regulators from across the globe to Toronto to participate in our international programs. The programs focused on the latest in supervisory and regulatory trends and risks, and provided an excellent opportunity for the participants to build their global networks.
As we head into fall we will be looking forward to programs that you might find interesting and wish to register.
We are very pleased to launch our new program on national payments systems  that will be held in South Africa and Turkey.
In conjunction with Riskbank, we will be holding our popular program on Crisis Preparedness and Resolution Options in Stockholm, Sweden at the end of September. We are happy to announce that we have closed registration as it has reached full-capacity.
In October, we will be hosting a panel discussion at the IMF and World Bank Annual Meeting in Bali on Improving Financial and Digital Inclusion for Gender Equality.
In November we will be launching a new program in Lithuania on inclusive insurance. To ensure a place in our training programs, please register today!
We are beginning our planning process for 2019. If your agency is interested in a capacity building program, please contact our Senior Program Director, Phang Hong Lim at or other Toronto Centre program directors at to discuss opportunities.
