You will need:

To make an e-transfer payment:

  • Log into your online or mobile banking app and select the account you wish to make payment from.
  • Add the town’s email address that you have been instructed to send payment to. Enter the payment amount. The town is registered for Interac e-Transfer Autodeposit and no security question is required. 
  • If you have the option to include a message, please include the reference number, permit number, street address or the information as instructed by staff.
  • Click “Send” or “Continue” to finish the transfer.

Electronic funds transfer (EFT or ACH)

Before making a payment:

  • Contact the town’s email address you have been instructed to make payment to.
  • Request the town’s direct deposit banking information for electronic funds transfer.

To make an EFT payment:

  • Working with your accounting software and financial institution, proceed as you normally do to process an EFT payment, directing it to the town.
  • Send an EFT notification to accountsreceivable@oakville.ca and include the reference number or instructions provided by staff.
  • Wire transfer payments are not a preferred payment method for permit applications. Payment by Wire transfer will result in a $25 additional fee and may cause permit processing delays.
