Starting July 2018, there will be an increase in the Canada Child Benefit (CCB). The maximum annual benefit will increase to $6,496 per child under age six and to $5,481 per child age six through 17. The CCB is a tax-free benefit paid monthly to eligible families to help them with the cost of raising children under 18.
You can use the child and family benefits calculator from Canada Revenue Agency to see what benefits you may be able to get and how much you may get.
If you need help with applying for the CCB, please feel free contact our settlement counselors.
