About TFSA

The Toronto Financial Services Alliance (TFSA) is a unique, public–private partnership dedicated to growing Toronto region’s financial services cluster and building it as a “top ten” global financial services centre. Established in 2001, TFSA is a collaboration involving three levels of government, the financial services industry and academia.

Working collaboratively with industry and government, we build international awareness of the advantages offered by the Toronto region and we work with financial services companies from around the world that are exploring business opportunities in Toronto.

We lead an integrated strategy with three main objectives:

  • To set, drive, and execute cross-sector priorities for the growth of jobs and investment in the Toronto region financial sector;
  • To promote awareness of the advantages of Toronto region’s financial services sector and its importance in order to grow our domestic and international reputation as a global financial services hub;
  • To identify and pursue initiatives to sustain and enhance the competitiveness of Toronto region’s financial sector as an attractive business environment and location for talent.

To leverage the financial industry’s global reputation for stability, we have established the Global Risk Institute in Financial Services. To capitalize on Toronto region’s talent advantages, we have established the Centre of Excellence in Financial Services Education.
