Default Sending Cheques in BC Federal

Hi there,

Im wondering if anyone has any information about writing a cheque to someone in a bc federal prison. My boyfriend just got transferred from provincial into federal & I was told that I could only send cheques or money orders not cash. Does anyone know how to write the cheque out? Is a money order easier to do? He is at RAAC in Abbotsford (Pacific Institution).

You can take cash if you visit but if you're mailing must be cheque or money order. Also, if the amount is more than $300 it can take them up to a month to 'process' it before it gets into his account. So my suggestion is to send less than $300 each time, especially at first when he needs it in his account for things. Once he has some available a longer delay may not matter as much.


Hope that helps.
