To provide evidence of expenditures, it is important for applicants to include clear proof that a payment has been made.
To provide evidence of expenditure, applicants can use receipts, official vendor statements, cheque stubs, credit card or bank statements supported by invoices for goods and/or services provided.
An invoice or quote alone is not sufficient as proof of payment.
For proof of payment for salaries and benefits to an intern or fellow, sufficient proof of payment includes T4s (for prior years, current year T4s are not permitted); cheque stubs/pay stubs; payroll summaries provided by third party payroll processing companies or timesheets to log staff time spent working directly on the project along with hourly rates which correspond to actual paid salaries (not standardized internal or market rates).
If you are using T4s for proof of payment, the T4 provided must be from prior years. Current year T4s are not permitted.
