Boston, October 21, 2021 – While the pandemic has undoubtedly created many challenges, it has also created opportunity within financial services. The Canadian open-loop prepaid card market experienced significant growth as cardholder habits changed and government payments for pandemic relief increased. With the upheaval and immediate need to adjust to a new normal, Canadian prepaid providers were quick to accommodate a more digital-first and rapidly adapting Canadian consumer, all while expanding the realm of use cases for prepaid form factors across the Canadian payments landscape.
