For families with children under the age of 6, the Government of Canada has provided a one-time benefit tax-free payment to help supplement expenses for child care during 2020-2021 under the CCB Young Child Supplement Program (CCBYCS).

No application is necessary as CRA will determine eligibility based on your 2019 and 2020 Individual income tax returns.

Meaning, you and your spouse or common-law partner must file your 2019 and 2020 income tax and benefit returns to get the payments you are entitled to.

Eligibility:

  1. For the January 2021 instalment, if your family net income for 2019 is less than $120,000, you will receive $300 ($150, if over $120,000) per child under the age of 6.
  2. For the April 2021 instalment, if your family net income for 2019 is less than $120,000, you will receive $300 ($150, if over $120,000) per child under the age of 6.
  3. For the July 2021 instalment, if your family net income for 2020 is less than $120,000, you will receive $300 ($150, if over $120,000) per child under the age of 6.
  4. For the October 2021 instalment, if your family net income for 2020 is less than $120,000, you will receive $300 ($150, if over $120,000) per child under the age of 6.
  5. Parents who share custody will each get half of the CCBYCS for each child under the age of six based on their own family net income.
  6. Agencies that receive children’s special allowances (CSA) payments will also receive CCBYCS equivalent payments of $300 for each child under the age of six for whom the CSA is paid.

Payments:

  1. May 28, 2021 (January and April 2021 periods)
  2. July 30, 2021
  3. October 29, 2021

Note that these payments are issued separately from the CCB payments you already receive.
