Hosted by: Victoria Chapter
Victoria FMI Chapter - 2019 Annual General Meeting and PD Event
Location: Hotel Grand Pacific, 463 Belleville St Victoria
08:00h - 11:00h

Please join us September 26, 2019 for the Victoria FMI Chapter’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) followed by an interactive presentation on "Payment Processing in Canada - What’s Under the Hood?” by Kristina Logue, Senior Director of Finance, Payments Canada

In her role as Senior Director of Finance, Kristina is responsible for managing accounting operations, procurement, budgeting and forecasting, as well as the modernization program and its funding. She also aids in strategic planning, setting agendas, and presenting financial and business matters to the Board of Directors Committees. Kristina is a graduate of the University of Ottawa (BCom) and a Chartered Professional Accountant.

Payments Canada provides Canada’s national payments systems which include the Large Value System and the Retail System. The Large Value System allows financial institutions and their customers to send large payments securely, and the Retail System supports day-to-day transactions that are cleared by Canadian financial institutions. The Retail System is where the vast majority of day-to-day Canadian commerce is cleared.

The value of payments cleared by Payments Canada’s systems in 2018 was approximately $53 trillion or $209 billion every business day. These encompass a wide range of payments made by Canadians and businesses involving inter-bank transactions, including those made with debit cards, pre-authorized debits, direct deposits, bill payments, wire payments and cheques.

The world is changing fast, and so are payments. New technology is transforming the way we pay, and Payments Canada is tasked with enabling the modern era of payments.

Kristina will introduce us to what Payments Canada does and where they are going to continue to provide a platform that allows those in the payments ecosystem to innovate and provide Canadians with convenient, safe, and efficient payment options.

Picking a CFO's Brain
Location: ***Location Change*** Four Points by Sheraton, 1496 Hollis Street, Halifax
09:00h - 12:00h

Picking a CFO’s Brain

Have you ever wanted to have a group of senior public sector financial leaders in the same room and just have at them with questions?

Well, on Thursday, October 3rd, fmi*igf Nova Scotia Chapter is giving you the chance to do just that. We have convened an excellent panel of Chief Financial Officers (CFOs) from all levels of government who will provide insights into their daily lives and what keeps them up at night – the challenges, opportunities, emerging trends, and how they deal with them.

Our wonderful panelists are:

  • Jane Fraser, Chief Financial Officer of Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM)
  • Geoff Gatien, Associate Deputy Minister and Controller for the Province of Nova Scotia 
  • Stéphane Legacé, Chief financial Officer for Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) in Moncton
  • Liz Stuart, Assistant Deputy Minister and Chief Financial Officer of Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC)

The panel will be moderated by Bruce Manion, former (now retired) Assistant Deputy Minister / Chief Financial Officer from Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) and Canadian Heritage, and a fairly familiar face in FMI circles.

Come and learn from these great leaders of our community and bring your questions – another opportunity like this one might be a long time coming!!!

The morning learning session will take place from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Hot buffet breakfast will be provided at 8:45 a.m.

Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m.

The cost for this session is $75 which includes a hot buffet breakfast and entitles registrants to a complimentary annual membership with FMI National.  All sessions qualify for 3 verifiable CPD credits.

Serving tomorrow’s public sector leaders, fmi*igf membership includes access to a world class education program at PD Week, in-person regionally focused chapter events, e-courses, workshops, an e-Journal and webinars all focused on emerging and current best practices, trends, and the skills needed to succeed now and in the future.

For our 2019-20 program, the fmi*igf Nova Scotia Chapter will be returning to downtown Halifax by running all sessions at the Four Points by Sheraton, 1496 Hollis St. We recognize this may present travel/parking issues for some members, however, recent feedback suggests we will have higher registrations from members who work downtown. The Four Points by Sheraton has good parking nearby. Here are a few options:

  1. Metro Park - access at 1157 Granville (near MEC)
  2. Salter St. Parking - access from Lower Water St. (near the Waterfront Warehouse)
  3. Impark Lot - access at 5250 Spring Garden Rd. (where Grafton St. intersects Spring Garden)
  4. Hollis St. Garage - limited number of spaces immediately below the conference centre - access at 1472 Hollis St.


PSMW 2020 will be held June 8-9, 2020 in Halifax, NS.
