    As most banks here will hold up a cheque deposit for at least 45 days there are better ways.
    Advise your friend to direct deposit in Canada and just use a bank card here for withdrawals. If they use Scotia Bank in Canada with a minimum balance there is no charge for withdrawing here at Scotia Bank.

    Banco Caribe used to but it's a 45 to 60 day hold on the funds.

    I went all over the place when starting my payments....

    US bank... DR bank.
    US they can do.... DR they cannot

    The simplest is as suggested above....
    Cdn deposit.... convert to US at will or as drawn at any foreign ATM

    Yes, my Cdn bank is Scotia and I have US & Cdn accounts
