How does Pre‑Authorized Debit work?

With PAD, you will continue to receive your bill approximately two weeks before the payment is due. On the due date, the actual billing charges indicated on your bill will be automatically withdrawn from your chequing account. You will know exactly how much will be paid from your account and when.

Why should I sign up for Pre‑Authorized Debit?

  • Convenient and reliable
  • Your bill will automatically be paid on time
  • Never miss a payment, avoid late fees
  • Save time and postage
  • 100% secure
  • Residential customers on PAD can also take advantage of our Equal Payment Program (EPP). With EPP, you pay about the same amount every month, making it easier to budget.
