As a parent, especially a single parent, you know how expenses can add up. The Canada child benefit (CCB) helps with the cost of raising children.

Over one year, families can get up to $6,833 for each child under 6 and up to $5,765 for each child aged 6 to 17.

Pssst… this is tax-free money.

The Canada child benefit (CCB) is administered by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).

Who can get the Canada child benefit

You must meet all of the following conditions:

  • You live with a child who is under 18 years of age
    You are primarily responsible for the care and upbringing of the child
  • See who is primarily re- sponsible
  • You are a resident of Canada for tax purposes
  • You or your spouse or common-law partner must be any of the following:
    – a Canadian citizen
    – a permanent resident
    – a protected person
    – a temporary resident who has lived in Canada for the previous 18 months, and who has a valid permit in the 19th month
    – an Indigenous person who meets the definition of “Indian” under the Indian Act

You cannot get the Canada child benefit (CCB) for a foster child for any month in which Children’s special allowances (CSA) are payable.

You may get the CCB if you live with and care for a child under a kinship or close relationship program, as long as CSA are not payable for that child.
