The application can be found online at: Distribution application.

All citizens who are not minors can pick up their cheques between December 12 and 14. Anacla residents can pick up their cheques at the Anacla Government Office. All other citizens can pick them up at the Port Alberni Government Office. Any remaining cheques that were not picked up will be mailed out at 4 p.m. on December 14.
