Home > Interac E-Transfer

Beginning in July 2022, the Parish now accepts donations and payments via Interac e-Transfer®.

100% of Interac e-Transfer funds go directly to our St. Anne Parish.

If you have been giving online via the previous Canada Helps link, consider changing to e-Transfer. The Canada Helps program has been very good, but comes with a 3% processing fee. By contrast, 100% of the donations or payments made through Interac go directly to our St. Anne Parish.

How to send an e-Transfer

Interac e-Transfers are sent via your online bank. You can use either a computer browser or a bank-specific mobile phone application to set it up.

Add St. Anne Parish as a Payee

The first time you send the Parish an e-Transfer, you need to create a new Payee. Depending on your bank, this step may be automatically done as part of sending an e-Transfer, but you can usually also do it manually.

  1. Log into your online bank account
  2. Look for a heading like Interac E-Transfers or Transfer money
  3. Find the Contacts or Payees section
  4. Create a new contact/payee, to be notified by email. Use the following email address:


Ensure you enter the email address correctly and exactly as above.

To ensure maximum security, auto deposit is set up for our Parish. This means there is no security question and answer needed for transfers to our Parish. The money will automatically be deposited in our Parish bank account as directed by you.
