You might think that nothing is a simple as writing a cheque, but a tremendous amount of work happens behind the scenes to get these payments to their destinations. See how cheques travel, why they’re “image-conscious” and what happens if they hit a bump in the road.
The Legal Stuff:
We’ve designed this video for everyone. It’s to help you get you better acquainted with the awesomeness of payments clearing and settlement. In real life, clearing and settlement processes can get pretty complicated. To help give you the basics, we’ve simplified content – so some stuff may not be technically accurate or complete. Also, this video is just for education and isn’t advice. If you work in an FI and you need the straight goods on operational, technical or legal matters, check out our rules and standards, talk to your tech experts, or pay a visit to your legal folks.
We probably don’t have to tell you this, but the views expressed are the CPA’s only (not necessarily those of the CPA’s members or anyone else). Sometimes we talk about other organizations in our videos. If you’ve got questions for these guys, you should reach out to them directly. If you need more info on the CPA, just visit our website (cdnpay.ca) or give us a shout.
We’d be psyched if you share our videos with your friends. We ask only that our copyright is respected... So don’t reproduce, copy, modify or adapt all or part of this video without getting the CPA’s permission in writing first. Commercial use and distribution of the contents of this video is definitely not cool, and therefore strictly prohibited. But you guys know that already, right?
