The app will be accessible for both Android and iOS users in Canada, it added.

“We are excited to announce that starting today, consumers in Canada will be able to access the seamless Paytm experience that is already well-known in India for its convenience. We are confident that Canada will be a very successful market for us,” Paytm Labs CEO Harinder Takhar said.
