Child Tax Benefit provides a tax-free monthly payment to help with the cost of raising children. The benefit is made on behalf of a child, to the parent, or primary caregiver, who primarily fulfills the responsibility for the child's care and upbringing.
National Child Benefit is a national supplement to the Child Tax Benefit that provides a tax-free monthly payment to help with the cost of raising children. The benefit is made on behalf of a child, to the parent, or primary caregiver, who primarily fulfills the responsibility for the child's care and upbringing. The benefit is determined by Canada Revenue Agency based on the previous year's income tax return, and that the benefit year runs from July-June inclusive.
There is also a Child Disability Benefit available as a supplement to the Child Tax Benefit to families with children under 18 who have a severe and prolonged mental or physical impairment. (This is treated as income and deducted from any social assistance payment being received.)
The Children's Special Allowances (CSA), is a monthtly payment for children under age 18 who are under the care of an agency.
The Universal Child Care Benefit is a initiative designed to assist Canadian families, as they seek to balance work and family life, by supporting their child care choices through direct financial support. The UCCB payment is paid on behalf of children under the age of 6 years in instalments of $100 per month per child.
The OCB is a non-taxable amount paid to help low-to moderate-income families provide for their children. OCB payments are delivered with the CCTB in a single monthly payment. Under the OCB, you may be eligible to receive up to $91.66 per month for each child under 18 years of age. If your adjusted family net income is above $20,000, you may receive a partial benefit.
