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 44 weeks between September 27, 2020 and May 7, 2022.

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)
