US and International Payments
 
For individuals located outside of Canada, we ask that payments be remitted in one of the three ways listed below:
 
  1. Canadian Dollar money order or bank draft. These can be arranged through most banks or at a US Postal Service location.
  2. Wire Transfer, see above for instructions.
  3. US Cheque is now accepted provided that it meets the criteria below.
 
For US Cheques:

US individuals and Practices may now pay in US dollars by converting the Canadian dollar amount owing to US dollars on the Bank of Canada currency converter.  You must add a 2% bank conversion fee to the amount owing.
 
Example: $913.04 in Canadian Dollars plus 2% for the bank fee totals $931.30. The new dollar amount of $931.30 is entered into the amount field on the link provided below to convert into the US dollar equivalent.
 
Log on to the Bank of Canada currency converter via the link below and input the amount.
 
Once you are on the Bank of Canada daily currency converter, enter the amount you wish to pay in Canadian dollars, select “From: Canadian Dollar” “To: U.S. Dollar” and select “Convert”
 
The Bank of Canada daily converter will provide the “Answer”, the “Exchange Rate” and the date of conversion for your records.
