Topic:  The changing times of Paper based clearing. "Remote Deposit Capture" now has a future in Canada.


Over the past 30 years, the traditional in branch cheque deposit and clearing mechanism has seen little change. In a world of fast communications, constant change, tremendous growth in the payment and card business and new technologies hitting the market every day, one would wonder why we have not seen similar improvement for paper items deposits and clearing. Well this is now changing.


On October 1, 2012, The Canadian Payments Association (CPA) announced that a Negotiating Financial Institution (FI) is allowed to create a Cheque Replacement Document (CRD) to present to a Drawee. It also became mandatory for a Drawee Institution to accept CRD’s. As well, CPA Members are now allowed to enter into bilateral agreements between financial institutions to permit the clearing and exchange of cheques on data and images only.


Paul J Latimer of NCR Canada is an expert in the world of cheque imaged processing. He will be presenting the change in infrastructure and technology required at financial institutions to deliver this new functionality to customers, deposit mechanisms that businesses and even personal clients will have at their disposal to remotely and electronically deposit cheques and the future of this business in

Canada .

Traditional commercial and personal cheque deposits are both time consuming and costly for banking customers. Join us for this AFPC Ottawa event and learn how these new CPA rules will lead to new services that change how cheques are deposited and cleared in

Canada .
