Our payment products can help indigenous communities across Canada
There are many indigenous communities that do not have access to traditional banking options, or some members prefer not to use them. That’s why DCR Strategies Inc. has created a reloadable payment product to help indigenous communities across Canada.
TruCash cards are not credit cards, and as such no credit application is required and approval is guaranteed with verified cardholder information for any member aged 16 years and older. TruCash cards are accessible for everyone – bank accounts are not required.
The card allows your members to take care of their everyday financial needs without any of these impediments holding them back.
Best of all, the TruCash card eliminates the need to issue cheques – saving time, increasing security, and reducing the spread of COVID-19.
Featuring the advantages of both debit and credit cards, but without any of the risks of credit or the limitations of debit, the TruCash Card provides a gateway that allows members of indigenous communities across Canada to have convenient and affordable access to their finances. It gives communities another option for the management of government-issued and/or personal funds.
Freedom of Choice
In remote and rural communities people are often forced to pay higher-than-normal prices for goods and services.
The TruCash program offers members more ways to use their money — it permits access to online shopping, booking hotels, or renting cars. Many of these options were not previously available to those without credit cards or even bank accounts.
With this access comes more choice and more competitive pricing, allowing your members to stretch their budgets further and improve their quality of life.
Have More Control Over Your Own Finances
Stop standing in line waiting and stop paying large cheque-cashing fees. With TruCash, funds are instantly loaded onto cards and can be accessed as needed.
TruCash money management tools also enable transfers from one family member to another. Accounts can also be set up to limit/restrict spending as needed. Thanks to its online platform, cardholders have 24/7 access to view and track their purchase history and balances in real-time via a dedicated web portal or the truTap mobile app — anywhere, anytime.
When it comes to convenience, the TruCash card can’t be beaten. The cards can be used anywhere Mastercard® or Visa® is accepted worldwide, including online or via phone, and cash can be withdrawn from ATMs. Funds are available whenever and wherever members need it.
The TruCash Card is a safer and more secure way to access money than traditional payment methods such as cash or cheques. Disbursement payments and expenses can be loaded into card accounts instantaneously, removing the possibility for cheque fraud or lost/stolen cash or cheques. If a card is lost or stolen, it can be easily replaced and the funds are transferred to the new card.
All TruCash cards feature a built-in loyalty component that allows cardholders to earn points for making online purchases. TruCash points convert to cash and are deposited directly into the card account–the only real-time points-to-cash loyalty program in the world.
Real-time reporting allows for greater transparency, which cuts down on fraud, improves customer service, allows for increased visibility, and increases the likelihood of program success.With numerous advantages and customization options available to cardholders, prepaid payments programs are quickly becoming the preferred method of payment for government programs and agencies.
Cost-effective, efficient, flexible to use, and far more advantageous and secure than traditional payment methods, such as paper cheques, DCR Strategies’ government prepaid programs have won the 2017 Paybefore Award for Best Benefits Delivery and the 2011 Paybefore Award for Best Government Program. In 2020 DCR Strategies partnered with the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs to provide immediate COVID-19 relief.
