If you are on the bi-weekly pay cycle, you will be paid every two weeks. If you are receiving a monthly stipend through the CAMH payroll system, you will be paid by direct deposit to your bank account once a month, on the second pay date of the month.
Please note: in months where there are 3 pay-dates, your monthly stipend will be deposited into your account on the third pay-date.
To receive your pay or stipend, you must first set up direct deposit to your bank.
Tax information can be found on the Canada Revenue Agency website.
Regardless of citizenship, trainees earning an income in Canada are required to pay provincial and federal taxes every year (based on calendar year, January 1 to December 31). If you are receiving a monthly stipend, you will be issued a T4A income statement and you assume responsibility for your own tax obligations. Your stipend will not be subject to withholding by CAMH for income tax, CPP, EI or other similar payments. You will be required to submit a Canada Customs and Revenue tax return on, or before, April 30 of the following year.
If you are an international trainee and are paid externally from your country of origin, you will need to complete a Determination of Residency Status (Entering Canada) form to determine whether you will have to pay taxes in Canada. There are reciprocal taxation agreements with many countries. To find out more contact the International Tax Services Office at 1-800-267-5177.
