When are Canada child benefit payments paid
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.
You should receive your first payment:
- within 8 weeks of our receiving your application online
- within 11 weeks of sending your application by mail
