Canada child benefit

COVID-19: Extending benefit payments and one-time payment increase

Due to the extended tax filing date, it was announced that eligible Canadians, who are presently receiving the Canada child benefit (CCB) payments, will continue to receive these payments until the end of September 2020. Payment amounts will be based on information from 2018 tax return(s) if their 2019 tax return has not been filed or assessed in time to calculate their benefit entitlements for the July to September 2020 payment.

You’re still required to file your 2019 income tax return. If the CRA is unable to assess your return by early September 2020, your estimated benefits credits will stop in October 2020 and you may have to repay the estimated amounts that were issued to you starting in July 2020.

The Canada child benefit (CCB) is administered by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). It is a tax-free monthly payment made to eligible families to help with the cost of raising children under 18 years of age. The CCB may include the child disability benefit and any related provincial and territorial programs.
