You asked, we advocated, and the government delivered! We’re pleased that, starting November 16, 2020, the Government of Canada is implementing MyGCPay stub, which provides clear and detailed information to understand your pay stub.
Important: you must be connected to the government’s network to access MyGCPay.
In past years, PIPSC members have requested clearer information about pay stubs. Whether it was in the PIPSC member survey, or in the Public Service Employee Survey, you made it clear that understanding your pay stub is especially important with all the uncertainty caused by the failed Phoenix pay system.
The message was heard loud and clear through consultations and then in a pilot phase. MyGCPay stub is now accessible to all employees working in federal departments and agencies. Earnings, taxes and deductions are separated into distinct tabs. Commonly-used terminology is defined and acronyms are explained.
We salute the government’s willingness to complete this project. We’re looking forward to further collaboration to keep members informed about pay stubs, especially when we transition to the NextGen HR and pay system.
