Merchant Strategic Leadership Team

As EMV cards enter the North American market, merchants must make decisions around compliance, training and other investments. This is complex, given the diversity of merchant POS systems, and the emergence of contactless, mobile and NFC.

To help them get information to assist in their decision making, ACT Canada formed the Merchant Strategic Leadership team (MSLT).


  • To connect merchants with information and other stakeholders - related to EMV, contact and contactless cards, mobile payment, and other emerging payment applications and technologies in the North American market.
  • To support merchants and help them better understand the roadmap, issues and opportunities
  • To provide a neutral forum in which merchants can share information and best practices
  • To identify questions and answers that can facilitate payment in the North American market
  • To recognize merchants as key stakeholders in secure payment
