Please ensure that your email address is shown on the void cheque/direct deposit form for cross-referencing purposes. All applicants requesting direct deposit must provide an email address.
A scanned version of your void cheque/direct deposit form must be submitted with the Online Gift Form, or emailed with your application form to [email protected].
For applications dropped off to the Lax Kw’alaams Band office or Lax Kw’alaams Business Development by paper copy, a paper copy of your direct deposit information will be required, along with the Electronic Funds Transfer Form (EFT) below.
