Canada child benefit payment dates

The CRA makes Canada child benefit (CCB) payments on the following dates:

You will not receive a monthly payment if your total benefit amount for the year is less than $240. Instead you will receive one lump sum payment with your July payment.

Go to My Account to see your next payment.

If you don't receive your CCB payment on the expected payment date, please wait 5 working days before you contact us.

The CCB young child supplement (CCBYCS) has a different payment schedule. For more information, go to CCBYCS payment dates.
