First did you opt to have it direct into your bank account.Second did you mark it on your tax return if you did not you may have a issue.Now to check it go to gov.on.ca all the info is right there.

The GST returns are done by Revenue Canada, not the Ontario government. Here's an exerpt from the actual site.
If they have not received their cheques by October 20, they should contact the GST/HST Credit Enquiries service at 1-800-959-1953. This service is available from 8:15 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., local time, on weekdays.

Yes but there is a spot on your tax return where you have to check it off.

What does that have anything to do with the Gov of Ontario?

No it doesn't. Tax returns are from the federal government, not the provincial government.

another alternative is that if you work and your income increased during the year due to a promotion or a job change to a certain threshold, you will stop receiving the GST cheques. In other words, once you're not considered a low-income earner you won't get it anymore :lol:

no, once you get a raise or whatever, you continue to get the same amount until the april (or maybe july) cheque of the next year. You are reassessed at tax time, and your cheque amount for the next year (4 pmts) is determined again. They don't reassess everytime your income changes throughout the year.

Just call them and ask. They'll tell you what happened. sometimes cheques get lost, sent to wrong addresses, etc. If you tell them you didn't get it, they'll reissue the cheque and void the original.
My nick doesn't mean I'm happy any more than yours means you're a sex machine.
