Canada PRO Bank Payment Just Landed in My Account – What is It?

June 11th, 2010

What is Canada PRO and why did I get a bank deposit from he/she/it?

Many Ontario residents will receive a “mystery” bank payment directly into their bank accounts in mid-December 2010. (And you might remember a similar one that landed earlier this year on Thursday, June 10, 2010.)  The mystery payment of $100 or  up to $330 for families is usually labelled “Canada PRO”. What the heck is it?
