Child Tax Benifits
What is the Canada Child Benefit (CCB)?
The Canada Child Benefit is a monthly tax-free payment for families with children under the age of 18. It will replace the Canada child tax benefit (CCTB), national child benefit supplement (NCBS), and the universal child care benefit (UCCB). To learn more about the new CCB please visit: Canada Child Benefit page

Who can receive the CCB?
If you have children under 18 you are most likely eligible to receive the CCB.

How do you apply for the CCB?
The sponsoring group can assist the newcomer(s) to apply for the CCB by completing both RC66 and Schedule RC66SCH.

How much CCB will you get?
The amount of money you receive depends on two things:
The number of children in your care; and your family net income
You can get up to:
$6,400 per year ($533 per month) for each child under the age of 6
$5,400 per year ($450 per month) for each child aged 6 to 17
an additional $2,730 per year if your child qualifies for the disability amount
Families with less than $30,000 in family net income will receive the maximum benefit.

Will the CRA use your direct deposit information for your CCB payments?
Yes. If you currently receive your payments by direct deposit, this will continue. To sign up for direct deposit, visit our direct deposit page. Direct deposit is the fastest way to get benefit and credit payments..

It is important to inform the family that in order to continue to receive the CCTB, they have to file their income tax and benefit returns for every year, even if they have no income to report.

To apply for the CCTB the applicant must have a SIN number.
