It can take weeks for a cheque to get into your account, if the bank it is written on is slow to respond.
If you deposit cash into your account it should appear immediately.
I have known a cheque to take 9 weeks. The bank it was written on had been in some financial difficulty, but the person who wrote it had teh money in the account, so the bank did not reject or pay it.Source(s): I worked In Canada's largest bank.

Although banks can clear checks faster, the Wikpedia article link below shows you the minimum required by law..
A warning , if a check is latter proven to be a fraud, it can still be taken out of your checking account after clearing. This is a problem for lottery check type scams where someone gives you a fake check, alter not to automatically clear, like some of the lotter scams or overpayment by check for product scams.
