Canada child benefit

Due to flooding and mudslides in British Columbia and severe weather in Newfoundland and Labrador and Nova Scotia, affected residents may experience a delay in the mail delivery of their CRA benefit and credit cheques. If you are affected, visit Canada Post for updates on your mail delivery.

You can also sign up for direct deposit so you can keep getting your benefits directly to your account. Visit Direct deposit – Canada Revenue Agency or call the Canada Revenue Agency at 1-800-959-8281.

The CRA will not deduct your Canada child benefit (CCB) payments if you have amounts owing due to being ineligible for COVID-19 Canada Emergency or Recovery Benefit payments.

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.
