A potential strike by Canada Post could disrupt services for people receiving or submitting money to the provincial government.

The Ministry of social Services said today in a press release that most monthly cheques were mailed June 23, including payments for the Saskatchewan Assistance Program, Transitional Employment Allowance, Saskatchewan Assured Income for Disability, Child and Family Programs, and Community Living.

While most of the ministry’s payments are made through direct deposit.  Clients, caregivers, service providers and vendors who do not receive payments through direct deposit will be able to pick up cheques at ministry service centres throughout the province until the risk of a service disruption at Canada Post has ended.

Clients and service providers are asked to check www.saskatchewan.ca/postal-strike after June 30, 2016, for more information, including cheque pickup locations and dates.

For businesses who need to file consumption taxes, the Ministry of Finance says there are several ways to file and pay, including online, or at some chartered banks, efile at www.saskatchewan.ca/finance or pay at the Ministry’s offices in either Regina or Saskatoon.
