Lynx will be owned and operated by Payments Canada and overseen by the Bank of Canada to process “large value, time-critical payments with real-time settlement finality” for seventeen member participants and their customers.

Lynx will also provide enhanced cyber security and resiliency capabilities, flexibility to support future technologies as well as reporting capabilities.

A second release is planned for 2022 to support the delivery of ISO 20022 messages, allowing for data-rich payments.
