The Canada Revenue Agency administers the Northwest Territories child benefit, which is a Canada child benefit (CCB) related program, on behalf of the Northwest Territories.
Northwest Territories child benefit
The Northwest Territories government announced changes to the Northwest Territories child benefit in its 2017 budget. These changes include providing additional support to low and middle income families as well as the elimination of the territorial workers’ supplement.
The Northwest Territories child benefit is a non-taxable amount paid monthly to qualifying families with children under 18 years of age.
The first monthly payment under the enhanced program will be issued in July 2017.
You may be entitled to receive the following monthly amounts:
Eligible children under the age of six:
- $67.91 for one child
- $122.25 for two children
- $166.41 for three children
- $203.75 for four children
- $30.58 for each additional child
Eligible children aged 6 to 17:
- $54.33 for one child
- $97.83 for two children
- $133.08 for three children
- $163.00 for four children
- $24.41 for each additional child
If your adjusted family net income is above $30,000, you may get part of the benefit.
These amounts are combined with the CCB into a single monthly payment.
This program is fully funded by the Northwest Territories.
