Introducing the new Canada Child Benefit
The Government of Canada is introducing a new Canada Child Benefit to replace the current system of child benefits.
There is no need to apply if you already get child benefits, but you and your spouse or common law partner have to file a 2015 tax return. If you are eligible, you will automatically start receiving the new Canada Child Benefit as of July 2016.
The new Canada Child Benefit is:
•simpler — most families will receive a single payment every month
•tax-free — families won’t have to pay taxes on payments received when they file their tax returns
•better-targeted to those who need it most — low and middle-income families get higher payments, and those with the highest incomes (generally over $150,000) receive less than under the previous system
•much more generous — families benefiting will see an average increase of almost $2,300 in the 2016-17 benefit year
