Direct deposit is a convenient way to receive payments from the Government of Canada. To get your benefit and credit payments, you must do your taxes every year, even if you have no income. The information from your tax return is used to calculate your payments.
If you are currently receiving your Canada Child Benefits and other federal payments by mail, you should consider enrolling in direct deposit. For more information on direct deposits visit: canada.ca/child-family-benefits or call toll free at 1-800-387-1193.
