CSB Payroll Savings Program 2017

Payroll savings

The CSB Payroll Savings Program

The Government of Canada announced it will discontinue the sale of Canada Savings Bonds (CSBs) purchased through the Payroll Savings Program as of November 2017.
What this means if you are currently enrolled in the Program

  • Your CSB contributions will continue to be deducted from your pay and go towards your CSB Payroll Savings Plan until 31 October 2017.
  • The funds in your Payroll Savings Plan are safe, guaranteed and will be honoured. Bond series in your plan will continue to earn interest until redemption or maturity, whichever comes first.
  • You will continue to have access to your funds 24/7 through CSB Online Services. If you wish to make a redemption prior to the maturity date, you can do so online or by using the automated telephone service.
  • As each bond series in your plan matures, the funds (principal and interest) associated with that series will automatically be paid out to you by cheque or direct deposit according to your account information.
  • After all the bond series in your plan have been redeemed or paid out, your plan will be closed.
  • If you contribute to a Canada RSP through the Payroll Savings Program, there will be no change at this time. If any, they will be communicated to you at a future date.

If your request has already been approved by your supervisor we will honour it; otherwise, we will hold your request(s) until there is a decision regarding a new collective agreement.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact your supervisor,

Union Petition Clarification Notice

Please be advised that there has been a recent petition circulating regarding Community Living Guelph Wellington (CLGW) and Community Living Dufferin (CLD).  As an agency, we want to confirm that this is a CUPE union led initiative and not an agency led initiative in any way.

CLGW wants to clarify a couple of points included in the union petition:

  • In addition to service expansion over the past several years, CLGW received an addition to base funding in 2014-15 in the amount of $793,641. This base funding increase was provided to … support the continued professionalization of developmental services and to support an increase in the salaries and wages of MCSS funded adult developmental services front line workers…”  This resulted in a 4% increase in staff compensation (salaries plus benefits)
  • In 2013 CLGW reduced agency-wide service hours by 4,680 per year to assist with our statutory financial obligations. There were no staff lay-offs as a result of this reduction in hours and no substantial reduction in service to clients

Please feel free to contact Laura Hanley, Executive Director at 226-314-0830 if you have any questions.
