Who We Are

In October 2020, IFH was acquired by Fintech Cadence. This strategic acquisition allows the two organizations to extend their reach across Canada, further utilize their extensive fintech expertise and network, and collaborate to build a pipeline of financial health fintechs in Canada.

Founded in 2018, Innovate Financial Health (IFH) was a nonprofit dedicated to advancing technology solutions to improve the financial lives of Canadians, particularly those more financially vulnerable.

Now operating as IFH Lab, we offer a 6-month program that provides financial health startups access to mentorship, education, and access to an unparalleled network of stakeholders, from financial institution executives, government representatives, industry experts, investors, to corporate and non-profit partners.
