Due to the potential for a Labour Disruption at Canada Post later this month, as of September 18, all benefit cheques issued by the City of Kawartha Lakes Social Services, including for residents of the County of Haliburton, are being issued in person only. This includes all direct client payments as well as trustee, third party and vendor cheques. Payments issued by Direct Bank Deposit (DBD) are still being processed normally.
