    • HOW TO OBTAIN SEQUENTIAL NUMBERS
      • You must obtain a series of sequential numbers to identify every type of RL slip you are submitting online. These unique numbers are mandatory, non-repeating and assigned to the same filer number for all types of RL slip.
      • Note that sequential numbers are different from the numbers pre-printed on the paper RL slips we provide and from those used for filing computer-generated RL slips.
      • This series of sequential numbers is reused each year, provided there are enough numbers for the number of RL slips you must file and you begin with the first number in the series each year.
      • To obtain a series of sequential numbers, contact the Division de l’acquisition des données électroniques.
