ATB said in a statement to Global News Tuesday afternoon that the technical issue itself had been resolved, but the banking errors that resulted were still be corrected.

“We apologize for any hardship this has caused and we thank our customers for their patience,” ATB said in the statement.

The company said it would also be taking care of any banking fees that were incurred as a result of the multiple payments.

Edmonton-based Whitemud Equine Learning Centre Association said on Twitter that it had over $52,000 taken from its accounts due to the error.

ATB said it was hoping to have all the payments corrected by the end of day Tuesday.
