Families to now receive increased Canada Child Benefit!

Child benefits are going to increase. CCB – Canada Child Benefit payments received will now increase to cope with cost of living.

The tax-free amount will be boosted on Friday.

Below are the details:

For children under six, families will now be able to receive $6,496 from $6400.

For children in between 6 – 17 years, families are now guaranteed to get $5,481 for every child, which previously was $5,400.

 

“Increasing the Canada Child Benefit will mean more money for Canadian families,” stated Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development in a statement.

 

“Our government is committed to ensuring that this tax-free benefit continues to help the middle class and people who are working hard to join it.”

 

The child benefit amount which the parent receives is depended on the income. This means, the more the income, the lesser the amount for children. The highest amount received by families with children whose household income is not less than $30,450.

The threshold set for income will also be a subject to change.

According to federal government, the Canada Child Benefit has served to over 300,000 children, pulling them out of poverty by giving over $23.3 billion to as much as 3.7 million families in Canada.
