Headquartered in Toronto, Canada’s financial sector is recognised as one of the world’s strongest. In 2014, the country’s banking system was ranked #1 in the world for financial strength by Moody’s. Toronto’s reputation and its financial institutions are underpinned by Canada’s ranking as the world’s soundest banking system six years in a row by the World Economic Forum (2008-2013). A rich heritage The city’s flourishing financial services industry is powered by a multilingual, multicultural, and diverse talent base – with its population speaking over 100 different languages. The name ‘Toronto’ derives from Native American language, and the city is a patchwork of former colonial villages, featuring a number of historical sites. Toronto to this day remains a mosaic of many cultures, which span Europe, the Americas, Asia, Africa and the Pacific. A celebration of innovation Toronto also boasts an innovative economy. More than a quarter of all Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in financial services is related to FinTech. R&D activity is greater than in any other single jurisdiction in Canada. The city’s mix of stability and innovation ensures that Toronto is the ideal host for Sibos 2017, as thousands of delegates come together to discuss the future of the industry. This will be the second Sibos to take place in the city, following its successful debut in 2011. Sibos will be held in the midst of significant celebrations, with 2017 marking Canada’s 150 year anniversary. The Metro Toronto Convention Centre is well-suited to an event of Sibos’ scale. As the only venue to have hosted both a G20 and a G7 summit, it’s used to welcoming leaders from around the world. The team is comprised of top-class event professionals, from highly-rated convention services staff to an award-winning culinary team. A city of opportunities The convention centre is within a 10 minute walk of most of the city’s major attractions. It’s served by convenient and accessible transport links, so delegates will have the opportunity to explore Toronto’s avant-garde architecture and bustling shopping districts. At night, the city comes alive with a wide range of arts and entertainment that reflect the myriad cultures. The famous harbour front cityscape, set against Lake Ontario, is dominated by the CN Tower – the tallest free-standing structure in the Western Hemisphere.
