Direct deposit request form

Sign up today by using one of the following formats:

Recipients are to receive payments from the National Research Council Canada (NRC) by electronic payment; please complete the direct deposit request form. Direct deposit payments will be made in Canadian dollars and can only be deposited into Canadian bank accounts.

Once payments are deposited, NRC will send the following information by e-mail: amount of payment, date of payment, invoice number, NRC reference number, and brief description of the payment. This e-mail notification will act in lieu of a cheque stub.


  • Must be a Canadian recipient holding a bank account in Canadian $.
  • Note that Direct Deposit payments carry no stub information.

Changes to bank account used

If you wish to make any changes to the bank account used for payments (change of address, financial institution, branch, account number, etc.) you must complete a new direct deposit request form. When you request one of these changes, do not close the present account until you receive your payment in accordance with that change.

Completing the form

There are three sections of the direct deposit request form that must be completed by the recipient.

1 - Type of request

Please complete this section by filling out one of the two request types described below.

New request

If you choose to sign up for electronic payments with NRC, please select ''New request – Direct Deposit'' as the mode of payment.


If you are already registered for electronic payments with NRC and you wish to modify your banking information, please select "Change request – change to banking information (provide a new blank cheque)".

This section must be completed, signed and dated by the appropriate person (or persons) in order to authorize the electronic payment enrolment request, or to modify electronic payments.
