Mitigating the impact on vulnerable consumers of the Canadian government's decision to stop issuing cheques

This project seeks to determine and document the acceptability of alternate payment methods for delivering government benefits to Canada's vulnerable consumer populations. Documentary research and interviews with experts will make it possible to weigh the pros and cons of various alternatives. Recommendations will be made with a view to ensuring that all Canadians can easily receive the monies they are due, without compromising the efficiency objectives of the federal government.
