COVID-19 government support programs

Note: Many government programs and supports will be delivered through Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). If you are applying for support, CRA encourages you to sign up for direct deposit to avoid delays in receiving payments.

If you need to set up your direct deposit with CRA, you’ll notice that Manulife Bank isn’t currently in the list of financial institutions on their website. Don’t worry, it’s easy to do this.

First, head to My Account and sign in. Then follow the instructions on the screen. When the page asks for your banking information, enter the following:

  • Branch/Transit number: 05012
  • F.I. Name: Manulife Bank of Canada
  • F.I. Number: 540
  • Account Number: Enter your 7-digit account number

You can also call the CRA at 1-800-959-8281 and follow the prompts.
