Due to the potential of a Canada Post strike soon, there are alternate methods to collect your Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) cheque, only in the event there is a strike. If there is no strike, delivery will proceed as planned.
1 – A family member can collect the cheque if a signed letter is provided, which includes the cheque recipient’s status number, along with a copy of the member’s ID.
2 – Banking information can be sent to Haisla Nation Council Attention: Doris Fraser (e-mail: email@example.com, or call 1-888-842-4752, extension 112), so the cheque can be deposited directly, through a local bank branch, if a local branch is located in Kitimat. The information must be a form from the bank, and to include all of the bank account details, and the name associated with the bank account must match the name on the cheque.
If there is no strike, delivery will proceed as planned.
Please also note that a family member is able to pick up the cheque of an Elder, those who are hospitalized and those elders that are sick at home only, but this also requires a signed letter and a copy of the members ID.
