The Canada Revenue Agency administers the following programs on behalf of the Yukon Government:
- Program related to the Canada child benefit (CCB):
- Program related to the goods and services tax/harmonized sales tax (GST/HST) credit:
This benefit is a non-taxable amount paid monthly to help low‑ and modest‑income families with the cost of raising children under 18 years of age. These amounts are combined with the CCB into a single monthly payment.
You may be entitled to a benefit of $68.33 per month for each child. If your adjusted family net income is above $35,000, you may get part of the benefit.
This program is funded by the Yukon with a contribution from Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada on behalf of Status Indian children.
This rebate is a non-taxable amount paid to individuals and families to help offset the cost of the federal carbon pollution pricing levy. The amount is combined with the quarterly federal GST/HST credit payments.
You may be entitled to the annual payment amount of $192.00 for an individual, $192.00 for a spouse or common-law partner, and $192.00 per child under 19 years of age.
In addition, individuals living outside of Whitehorse may also receive a remote supplement amount of $19.20 for an individual, $19.20 for a spouse or common-law partner, and $19.20 per child under 19 years of age.
The amount is not subject to a benefit reduction based on income.
Individuals may also be eligible for the two initial payments that were made in October 2019 and April 2020. For these initial payments, an amount of $43.00 was paid for each individual, including children.
This program is fully funded by the Government of Yukon.
