How do I set up Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) direct deposit to receive government benefits in my Vancity account?

We know it’s important for members who need benefit payments like the Canada Emergency Response BenefitCanada Emergency Student Benefit, Canada child benefit, GST credit, and income tax refund to get those payments quickly.

Same goes for our business members who need benefit payments of the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy and refund of payroll deductions.

Working with our partners, we now have a fast, convenient and secure way for members to sign up in online banking and receive any amounts to be paid to you by the Canada Revenue Agency.

We are here to help you set up direct deposit with CRA for the first time or to change your existing direct deposit information at another financial institution to your Vancity account. This will replace all previous CRA direct deposit authorizations for individuals and only your payroll account (RP) for businesses.

Use online banking (desktop) to complete the set up at your convenience. If you require assistance with online banking, please call us at 604.877.7000 or 1.888.826.2489 or visit your nearest community branch

If you are a business member using Online Business Plus, please go to the CRA website to enroll for direct deposit.
