Payments are made by direct deposit, or by cheque or wire transfer for suppliers who have not registered for direct deposit
The University deposits the amounts it owes to its suppliers directly into their bank accounts.
Direct deposit registration
The University invites all suppliers who have not yet registered for direct deposit payments to do so by completing the Request for Payment Form. In addition, we would also ask that suppliers provide us with the tax registration number they were issued by the Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA), if they have one. To register, suppliers must send in the duly completed form, along with a void cheque or official document from their financial institution, to this email address or to the following postal address:
Accounting, Financial Resources
University of Ottawa
550 Cumberland Street, Room 021
Ottawa ON K1N 6N5
Note that if the company uses different payment addresses, each linked to a different bank account, we ask that you complete one form for each payment address.
Please send in the following information:
- Duly completed Request for Direct Bank Deposit (one for each payment address)
- Void cheque or document from your financial institution
- Tax registration number from CRA (if available). This number can be in the body of the email or on a separate sheet if the documents are being sent by regular mail.
The University of Ottawa will issue cheques to pay the amounts due to suppliers who have not registered for direct deposit. However, note that the University will only be issuing cheques once every two weeks.
