If you’re entitled to receive the CCR, you can expect to receive your payments on the 15th of April, July, October and January.

When the 15th falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or a federal statutory holiday, the payment will be made on the last business day before the 15th.

If you file your taxes electronically by March 15, 2024, you should receive your next CCR payment (formerly known as the Climate action incentive payment) on April 15, 2024. If you file after March 15, 2024, generally, you can expect to get your CCR payment 6-8 weeks after your tax return has been assessed.

The CCR includes a supplement for residents of small and rural communities. To claim the rural supplement you must tick the box on page 2 of your income tax and benefit return.

As the rural supplement is already included in the basic amount for Prince Edward Island, individuals from that province don’t have to claim it on their tax return.

If you get your tax refund by direct deposit, you will also get your CCR by direct deposit. For more information and ways to enroll for direct deposit, go to Direct deposit – Canada Revenue Agency.

If you are registered for direct deposit, you should see these payments in your bank account as "Canada Carbon Rebate", formerly shown as "Climate Action Incentive" (note: wording may vary based on financial institution and the new name may not immediately be reflected).

If you do not receive your CCR on the expected payment date, please wait 10 working days before you contact us.

Go to My Account to see your next payment or sign up to receive benefit and credit payment reminders about one week before the payment is issued.
