Deposit and distribution of the amounts deposited

When you register for voluntary deposit you undertake to deposit an amount corresponding to the seizable portion of your income, at the office of the Court of Québec, on a regular basis.

You must deposit the amount yourself. It cannot be deducted from your wages by your employer, at any time.

The amount deposited will then be distributed among your creditors.

Time of deposit

If you are paid a regular salary, you must make your voluntary deposit within 5 days after receiving your salary or wages.

If you are self-employed, you must make your voluntary deposit each month. The exact date is not specified by law; you must simply make one deposit in the course of the month.

Payment methods

You can make a voluntary deposit using one of the following payment methods:

  • credit or debit card;
  • certified cheque;
  • postal order;
  • cash.

Before making a voluntary deposit, you must establish what your income is and calculate the seizable portion.
