Direct Deposit

Direct deposit allows the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) 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.

NSERC issues direct deposit payments to:

  • Institutions (universities and colleges)
  • Awardees
  • Committee members
  • Suppliers
  • 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.
