Repaying My Cash Advance

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Once you have your cash advance, you are responsible for repaying the total of advance funds issued, plus the administration fee and applicable interest.

When do I have to repay my advance?

Cash advances from CCGA must be repaid as the commodities advanced on are sold; the earlier of 30 days from receiving payment or 60 days from delivering the commodity, without missing the final repayment deadlines below.

Assuming all application paperwork deadlines​ are satisfied, the following repayment periods apply:

  • ​Advances on field crops, honey, goats, sheep and lambs must be repaid in full by the September 30 end of the 18-month program year 
  • Advances on cattle and bison must be repaid in full by the March 31 end of the 24-month program year
  • Continuous flow advances on cattle and hogs must be repaid within 12 months of the advance being issued or by the September 30 end of the 18-month program year

How do I repay my advance?

Repaying your advance can be done directly to CCGA by sending us a cheque or sending funds through your financial institution, or indirectly through an authorized buyer. See below for when you need to submit Proof of Sale with your repayment.

  • Pay through your financial institution. You can pay CCGA directly through your financial institution, making repayments in-person, over the phone, or online. To do this, add “CCGA” as a Bill Payee, using your APP ID as your account number. If you have any questions about setting this up, call us at 1-866-745-2256, option 2. 
  • Send CCGA a cheque. You can mail a cheque referencing your APP ID to the attention of the “Repayments Department” at our Winnipeg office.
  • Pay through authorized buyer. For grain repayments only, you can request that an Authorized Buyer make a repayment to CCGA on your behalf, but remember that the buyer has up to 30 calendar days to remit that deduction. 

​When do I need to provide Proof of Sale and how do I submit it?

Proof of Sale documentation is required for all repayments, except:

  • Grain and honey repayments made directly to CCGA and received before January 31 of the given program year (e.g. for a 2020-21 advance, the deadline would be January 31, 2021).
  • Grain repayments made on your behalf to CCGA through Authorized Buyers, since buyers include Proof of Sale information with repayments.
