Children's Special Allowances (CSA)

Children’s Special Allowances agencies who have children under their care in May 2020, will receive an increase of $300 more per child included with their regularly scheduled May 20, 2020 payment. This payment is part of the Government of Canada’s financial and economic support efforts related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Children's Special Allowances (CSA) program provides payments to federal and provincial agencies and institutions (such as children's aid societies) that care for children.

The monthly CSA payment is equal to the maximum Canada child benefit (CCB) payment plus the child disability benefit (CDB).
