Powered by FIntech Cadence, IFH Lab is a six-month, equity-free program for startups designing real solutions to the most pressing financial health challenges Canadians face today.

About IFH Lab and its mission:

Millions of Canadians are struggling to pay for today, save for tomorrow, and plan for the unexpected. Over 50% of Canadians spend more than or equal to their income every month and 1/3rd aren’t able to pay all their bills on time and in full. Fintech can fill this gap. 

Innovate Financial Health (IFH) Lab is a 6-month no-fee no-equity program for startups designing technology-based solutions to the most pressing financial challenges facing Canadians today, particularly those more financially vulnerable. The program will operate in a hybrid format with an in-person orientation and demo-day and virtual sessions in between. Startups will get access to mission-aligned mentors, partners, investors, and peers through the program.

You are an early-stage fintech company with a demonstrated commitment to improving the financial lives of Canadians with…

  • At least one full-time employee
  • Validated idea
  • A product in market with some users (test users/pilots included)
  • Incorporated in Canada, or with plans to incorporate in Canada by the end of the cohort
  • Can commit to the program sessions
We equally support entrepreneurs looking to build venture-backed businesses and those looking to build non-profits.
IFH Lab and Fintech Cadence are committed to fostering a community that includes diverse perspectives in the development of new fintech innovations. We actively seek applicants who are from, or who have worked closely at the community level with historically marginalized groups. This includes but is not limited to First Nations, Inuit or Metis people, people of colour, people with disabilities, LGBTQIA+ people, recent immigrants and people from low-income families.
