Most relief cheques have now been mailed

The provincial government says the vast majority of relief cheques have now been mailed to residents.

Deputy Premier and Minister of Finance Siobhan Coady said 96 percent of the initial 392,000 cost-of-living cheques have been mailed out.

Cheques were mailed to eligible residents based on their address on file with the Canada Revenue Agency as of June 2022. Cheques will continue to be mailed as more residents late file their 2021 tax returns. Those who file between October 1 and December 31, 2022, will receive their cheques once we receive the required information from Canada Revenue Agency. Residents who have not yet filed their 2021 Newfoundland and Labrador tax return are reminded that the deadline is December 31, 2022.

Those with adjusted income of less than $100,000 will receive $500 and those with adjusted income between $100,000 and $125,000 will receive a partial payment ranging between $250 and $500.
