Have you claimed the climate action incentive payment yet?
Pollution has a cost – it impacts the air we breathe, our children's health and our economy. That's why the Government of Canada has put a price on carbon pollution.
The Government of Canada has introduced the new climate action incentive (CAI) payment. If you are a resident of Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario or New Brunswick, you can claim it when you file your income tax and benefit return.
How much you may receive depends on your province of residence and your personal situation.
- in Saskatchewan, a single person who is 18 or older without children could receive $305
- in Manitoba, a person with a spouse or common-law partner (but only one of them may claim) without children could receive $255
- in Ontario, a person could receive $307 for a family of four
- in New Brunswick, a single person with a dependent child under the age of 18 could receive $160
If you are eligible for the climate action incentive payment and didn't claim it when you filed your income tax and benefit return, it's not too late! All you have to do is change your income tax and benefit return.
