Can I make my own cheques?

I'm running low on personalised cheques, and since I don't use them very often anymore, I'm not inclined to order more. A colleague at work said 'why not make your own?' So I'm pondering working some up on the computer following one of my cheques sitting here on my desk.

And I recalled that last summer, a tenant came in with a bunch of post-dated 'cheques' for his apartment rent. He'd written one out himself, with all the information that's on a 'regular' cheque, such as account and transit numbers, branch name and address, etc., then photocopied and cut them. I was dubious, but took them to the accountant, who looked at them, and said basically, 'yep, they're valid'.
Anyone else ever do this? Found a nice template online? Had them refused? I'm in British Columbia, Canada, by the way, if anyone's referencing laws.
