How do I sign in if I don't use one of the banks that it requires. I use a credit union

This is so unprecedented - Uncashed cheques from the CRA! At first I thought it's impossible that the CRA doesn't want money from you !Yay! ... but I realize that they ALWAYS take money from me FIRST then I have to try to get it back. Smiling Face With Horns

Weird that if you owe them money, they always cash your cheques, never will they leave your cheques uncashed ... Crying Face

For those that found the cheques, this is like finding loose change under the couch cushions in an abandoned CRA's office Grinning Face With Smiling Eyes

Try loggin in to the CRA portal. There are some instructions at the CRA site in the page Uncashed cheques from the Canada Revenue Agency

Uncashed cheques from the Canada Revenue Agency

There are many reasons Canadians may have an uncashed cheque from the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). For example, someone may have moved and not updated their address, believed the payment was issued to them in error, or the cheque may have been lost, stolen, or destroyed.

Individuals and their legal representatives can view their uncashed cheques on CRA’s My Account portal with the ability to request a duplicate payment.

CRA cheques never expire or become stale-dated. You can cash your CRA cheque for free at any bank in Canada.

If you are having issues cashing an old CRA cheque, mail the cheque to the Imaging and Receiver General Operations Directorate and ask to have it reissued with a current date.
