The Basics of Canada Child Benefit (CCB) - A Webinar for Service Providers



Presented on May 16, 2019

The Canada Child Benefit (CCB) is a tax-free monthly payment made to eligible families to help with the cost of raising children. This benefit was introduced by the Federal government in 2016 to help low- and middle-income families with the cost of raising children under the age of 18. While the CCB is an important tool for poverty reduction, it excludes certain children based on immigration status of their parents.

The following are covered in this webinar:

  • Who is eligible for CCB?
  • How does immigration status impact CCB eligibility?
  • What options are available for community members who have been denied CCB?
