To ensure that your invoice is not delayed in processing, your invoice must include Capilano University's purchase order number (and services contract number if applicable). Invoices or goods received by Capilano University that are not referenced to a purchase order number, or authorized by the Purchasing Department, will be returned to the vendor at the vendor's expense.

Standard terms of payment are net 30 days from receipt of invoice or goods, whichever is later.


Immediately following the shipment of goods, invoices may be submitted to:

Capilano University
Attention: Accounts Payable
2055 Purcell Way
North Vancouver, BC V7J 3H5

Purchases made with Mastercard

In some instances, payment will be made by a Capilano University purchasing card (Mastercard). In this case, invoices must accompany the goods/services, to ensure the cardholder receives the invoice.

Invoices paid by University purchasing cards (P-card) MUST indicate payment was made by "Mastercard" and include a reference number using the following format:


PC indicates payment by P-card
XX indicates first and last initials of the P-card cardholder
1234 indicates the final 4 digits of the P-card
