Payment Process

After the applicant has submitted their online application, they will receive an email with instructions to contact their local government to determine the acceptable form of payment.

  1. Applicants send the full fee to Local Government
    Applicants pay the full application fee to their local government (if applicable) in the manner prescribed by the local government. The local government will retain $300 and forward the ALC portion of the fee to the ALC on behalf of the applicant. Local governments should forward fees as soon as possible (i.e. fees should not be submitted quarterly) to avoid delay in processing of the application by the ALC.
     
  2. Local Government sends a portion of the fee to the ALC
    Once the ALC portion of the application fee is received, the application will be processed. 

There will be a lag between the time the local government receives the electronic application and the application fee. The discretion is left to the local government to defer processing of the application until the fee is received. Similarly, there will be a lag between the time the ALC receives the electronic application and the fee is received. The ALC will not process the application until the fee is received from the local government. This interim period may be used by ALC staff to review the application for deficiencies.

After the applicant has submitted their online application, they will receive an email with instructions to send the fee to the ALC. Once the ALC portion of the application fee is received, the application will be processed. 

This application fee can be paid by one of the following methods:

  1. Cheque made payable to the Minister of Finance c/o the ALC
