Have you received a deposit in your bank account called Canada PRO?

The Canada PRO payment is usually related to a Child and Family Benefit.

In Ontario, it can possibly be the Ontario Trillium Benefit.

The OTB is made up of the Ontario Sales Tax Credit and the Ontario energy and property tax credit and/or the Northern Ontario energy credit.

In Alberta, it may be the Alberta Child and Family Benefit.

The benefit year ends in June so you will usually see this payment towards the end of June or in July.

Some will receive this as a monthly payment while others receive this as an annual payment.

To have a better understanding as to what the payment is related to, details should be available in your CRA My Account, so I suggest checking in there.

Your Deposits Can Also Be Noted As:

Canada RIT

RIT refers to a refund of income tax. (This payment is also sometimes referred to as RIF.) A Canada RIT payment is, simply put, a tax refund that you get after filing your income tax return.

Getting a Canada RIT payment can seem like a windfall—a good opportunity for a little fun spending. Or you might see it as the universe’s way of encouraging you to start investing.

Canada FPT

FPT is a shortened form for Federal-Provincial Tax Credit. It’s a government program that provides money to citizens who qualify. The credit is split between the federal and provincial governments, and it’s applied to your income tax return.

If you’ve received money from FPT, it will show up on your bank statement as a deposit from the Canadian government.
