My benefits and credits

Every dollar counts! Benefits and credits can help. Find out if you qualify.

Canada child benefit (CCB)

If you are a parent, like Henry, you know how expenses add up.  The Canada child benefit can help.

Families can get up to $6,496 for each child under 6 and up to $5,481 for each child aged 6 to 17 for the July 2018 to June 2019 benefit year.

The CCB is a tax-free monthly payment made to eligible families to help them with the cost of raising children.

GST/HST credit

Shazeal found that the GST/HST credit helped with the expenses she had as a student. Depending on your situation, it could help you too.

Single individuals can get up to $433 for the July 2018 to June 2019 benefit year. A couple with two children can receive up to $866.

The credit is a tax-free quarterly payment that helps individuals and families with low and modest incomes offset the GST/HST they pay.

Workers benefit

Having to change from a job he’d groomed himself for his whole life was an incredible shock for David. The workers benefit helped him with the transition during which time he had a low paying job.

Low-income workers may be eligible for the Working Income Tax Benefit (WITB) when filing their 2018 tax returns.

For 2019 and later years, this refundable tax credit will be enhanced and renamed as the Canada Workers Benefit (CWB).
