Credit Conditions

The conditions governing credit privileges provided by the Minister are:

"Minister" means the Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food or anyone authorized to act on the Minister's behalf. "Customer" means an organization or an individual that has an account with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.

  1. The customer shall pay Her Majesty for the amount of all goods or services received subject to terms of payment in effect on the date of the provision of the goods and services and as stated on an invoice or other written document specifically applicable to such provision which shall be provided by the Minister. Discounts will not be granted for prompt payment. Customer will be charged interest on any overdue amounts in accordance with agreements or as permitted by legislation/regulation.
  2. An administrative fee will be applied to any account whose cheque or other payment instrument is not honoured by the financial institution on which it is drawn, for reasons of Non Sufficient Funds ("NSF") or otherwise.
  3. Credit privileges may be withdrawn or the terms of payment may be revised if it is discovered that the customer has made a material false declaration or is otherwise in breach of imposed terms and conditions; or, the customer's credit limit has been reached and a reassessment of the account does not support increasing the credit limit; the Minister obtains evidence that the customer's financial viability is doubtful and/or there is no reasonable expectation of receiving payment for services requested or any other reason deemed appropriate by the Minister. When credit privileges are withdrawn, the customer shall pay in advance for any required goods and services.
  4. If as a result of false information, a customer obtained credit which would not have otherwise been given, full payment by the customer shall be made immediately, regardless of any decisions regarding possible prosecution of the customer.
  5. The customer shall notify the Minister of any change of address or ownership within five working days from the date of those changes.
  6. For the collection of an overdue account, be advised that if you are eligible for a payment from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, Canada Revenue Agency or any other department or Agency of the Crown, we may take action to have such payment held and applied against your outstanding debt and that information provided by the customer may be provided to another government department.
