Chief internal auditor
Street Capital Bank of Canada
Since joining Street Capital Bank of Canada (soon to be RFA Bank of Canada) in 2015, Janne Farias has made several meaningful contributions to the bank’s internal controls, risk management and governance. As the chief internal auditor, she is tenacious in collaborating with and consulting across a broad range of financial services functions. She also leads the bank’s internal audit strategy, which she built from scratch, and played a key role in the bank becoming a federally regulated financial institution. Keeping in mind the challenges faced by small banks, Farias works closely with management and the board to strengthen the bank’s brand and reputation.
Outside of work, Farias is an active member of the small and mid-size banking forum within the financial services and internal audit communities and sits on the board of directors of a successful fintech firm. She is also an active participant in the Ride to Conquer Cancer and a mentor for the Schulich School of Business.
