Notice on SSHRC's operations

Direct Deposit

Direct deposit allows the SSHRC to deposit payments automatically into your bank account.

It's a way to receive your payments without any postal delay. Not only will you receive your payments on time and be able to access them quickly, you can also be sure they will never be lost, stolen or damaged.

SSHRC issues direct deposit payments to:

  • institutions (universities and colleges);
  • awardees paid directly;
  • committee members;
  • suppliers; and
  • companies.

The Government of Canada will be phasing out cheques in favour of direct deposit for all government payments. You will, therefore, need to sign up for direct deposit. Given the benefits, why wait?

Sign up today—it's fast, reliable and secure. For more information, please refer to the Direct Deposit—Frequently Asked Questions and the Service Standards.
