In Canada, cheques issued by the Government of Canada do not expire. do personal cheques ever expire? If so, what is the limit before they need to be re-issued?

  • In India, recently the limit has been reduced to just three months. – Natwar Lath Jan 13 '12 at 2:17

Expire is not really the right term; but effectively yes.

In general a cheque older than six months will be considered stale-dated and will not be honoured. Reference the Canadian Payments Association FAQ
