Proposed interim dental benefit for children under 12 years old

The government is proposing a new interim Canada Dental Benefit for eligible families earning less than $90,000 per year. You would need to apply to get a payment for each eligible child if they receive dental care and do not have access to a private dental insurance coverage. Your benefit amount would be based on your family income. Applications may be available in December 2022.
