The AMF is 20! A constantly changing industry, a continuously adapting organization

Over the past 20 years, Québec’s financial sector has undergone major transformations that have reshaped consumer habits and, in so doing, fundamentally changed how the industry interacts with its clients. These transformations have also required industry participants to demonstrate an exceptional level of adaptability and resilience.
