New Details for Round 56:

  • Rachel Oldfield is retiring! Rachel Oldfield will be leaving Starmaker effective August 31, 2015. After 14 years of running all financial aspects of the Fund she is ready to hang up her calculator. We are all very sorry to say goodbye to Rachel but we are pleased to introduce Michelle Farres who will be assuming the position of Manager of Finance & Administration beginning September 1st of this year. Rachel has spent the last few months training Michelle and we expect a seamless transition in September. Michelle can be reached at: michellefarres@starmaker.ca
  • Starmaker is going fully digital. Beginning in September, we are introducing a new system for the fulfilment of your applications and submitting your documentation. We are very excited about the new system and we will have more details in August. All applicants with currently open files will be provided with login information and transitioned over to the new system. Under the new structure there will no longer be paper contracts or paper invoices sent to our offices. All contracts, invoices and proofs of payment will be uploaded to the site and all the reporting will be done on the website. This is going to make life easier for everyone and we expect it will help all of you manage your files in a more efficient and cost-effective manner.
  • Starmaker is moving to direct deposit. As part of our new system, we will no longer issue cheques to people starting September 1st. For those of you with currently open files, we will be in touch with you as part of the transition to the new fulfillment portal to make sure we have the appropriate bank details to process payments. This means the last cheque run will be completed July 15th and there will not be another round of payments going out until mid-September as we transition to the new system. For those people with approvals from June 2015, your contracts will be delayed as the new system goes live and the initial payments due under your June approvals will be processed via direct deposit in September. You will be contacted over the summer to provide the appropriate direct deposit information.
