Upcoming changes affecting some employees who are paid through direct deposit with Alterna Savings and Credit Union (formerly known as CS Co-op) currently access their pay on the Tuesday prior to our official pay day (which is Wednesday).

Alterna Savings and Credit Union (Alterna) has recently advised Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) that they will no longer be offering this service.

Effective July 15th, all Government employees who are Alterna clients and who are paid by PWGSC, will receive their direct deposit payment on the Wednesday of pay week. Employees who previously had early access to their pay may need to take steps with Alterna to adjust any automatic withdrawal instructions currently in place.
