Early reporting over the holidays

If you have a reporting period ending December 19, 2020, you can complete your report early. This helps ensure that you can receive your payments without delay during the 2020 to 2021 winter holiday season.

  • Clients who live in Ontario and Western Canada will be able to report on Monday, December 14 after 7:00 pm
  • Clients who live in Quebec and Atlantic Canada will be able to report on Tuesday, December 15 after 7:00 pm (7:30 pm in Newfoundland & Labrador)

Clients who report electronically will be notified of the early reporting dates via the Telephone Reporting Service and the Internet Reporting Service.

Once you complete your early report, if there is a change to the information you provided, contact Service Canada.
