Departmental Deposit Facilities
The Department of Public Services and Procurement Canada, in its role as Receiver General for Canada (RG), is responsible for the management and safeguarding of all federal government money.
Many departments accept payments, and are required by legislation to ensure funds are deposited into the central Consolidated Revenue Fund at the Bank of Canada as quickly as possible. Departments work in conjunction with the Receiver General to establish appropriate banking facilities for their lines of business. Deposit facilities can include deposit accounts at nearby financial institution branches, credit card acceptance capabilities and online payment acceptance among others. Note that banking facilities can be established in both foreign and domestic locations. This dataset entitled “Departmental Deposit Facilities” provides details, extracted from the Government Banking System, of the banking facilities established by the Receiver General for federal departments.
Updates will be posted quarterly.
