Canada Recovery Caregiving Benefit (CRCB)

How much you can get

How much you receive per period

The Canada Recovery Caregiving Benefit (CRCB) provides a payment of $500 (before taxes withheld) per household for each 1-week period applied for. After the CRA withholds a 10% tax at source, the actual payment you get is $450 per 1-week period.

Only one eligible individual in the same household (living as a family at the same address) can apply for the benefit per week.

Each household may receive payments for a maximum of 42 weeks between September 27, 2020 and October 23, 2021. New

If you're eligible, your payment amount will be the same for each period you’ve applied for, even if:

  • you are caring for more than one family member who needs supervised care
  • you worked for less than 50% of the work week

How we calculate your payment

  • $500 (CRCB gross amount)
  • minus   $50 (10% tax withheld at source)
  • equals $450 (amount you receive per period)
