Government Asking Those that Receive Government Payments to Transition to Direct Deposit
The Provincial Government is aking individuals and businesses that receive payments to switch to direct deposit.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Provincial Government is asking all individuals and businesses that receive payments from the Provincial Government via cheque to transition to electronic payments as soon as possible.
Given the impacts that COVID-19 has had on delivery services in the province, the Provincial Government cannot guarantee individuals and businesses will receive cheque payments in a timely manner.
This request would apply to all cheque payments issued by the Provincial Government including pensioner payroll, income support payments to individuals and landlords, as well as general accounts payable payments.
