Find out if you qualify for the supplement for residents of small and rural communities

To receive your payment on April 14, 2023, you and your spouse or common-law partner (if applicable), must have had your income tax and benefit returns assessed on or before March 24, 2023. If your tax returns are assessed after this date, your payment will be included in a subsequent payment.

The climate action incentive payment includes a 10% supplement for residents of small and rural communities. The supplement applies only to residents of Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and Ontario whose primary residence is outside a Census Metropolitan Area (CMA), and they expect to continue to reside outside the same CMA on April 1, 2023.

As of July 1, 2023, the climate action incentive payment rural supplement will apply to residents of Newfoundland/Labrador and Nova Scotia whose primary residence is outside a Census Metropolitan Area (CMA).

All residents of Prince Edward Island are eligible for the climate action incentive payment which includes a percentage for the rural supplement in the basic amount.

Follow the steps below to find out if you qualify:

  1. In the tables below, find the CMA closest to your primary residence.
  2. Use the corresponding list of municipalities and map to find your primary residence. You can zoom in to the map to view street address details.
  3. If your primary residence is located:
    • outside all listed municipalities or outside the shaded area of a map, you are considered to be residing outside a CMA and you do qualify for the supplement. Tick the box on page 2 of your income tax and benefit return.
    • within a listed municipality or within the shaded area, you are considered to live within a CMA and you do not qualify for the supplement. Do not tick the box on page 2.
