Canada Bank Technology Spending

Steady Investment to Stave Off Looming Competition

About This Report
Technology decision-makers within the banking industry will need to balance high tech spending with the potential for competitive disruptors.
Table of Contents

Executive Summary

We expect total bank technology spending in Canada to grow by 8.8% in 2022, continuing a five-year trend of fast growth. Annual growth will remain relatively unchanged through the remainder of the forecast period, settling at 8.6% in 2026, but a shortage of skilled tech workers could derail plans to increase spending.

Key Question: What trends and challenges are influencing banks to maintain high levels of technology spending?

KEY STAT: Canada bank technology spending will hit C$9.29 billion ($7.41 billion) in 2022 and grow to more than C$12.91 billion ($10.30 billion) by 2026.
