This calculator lets you estimate the Canada Child Benefit you will receive between July 2016 and June 2017 based on your family income in 2015.
Starting in July 2016, the tax-free Canada Child Benefit will replace the taxable Universal Child Care Benefit (UCCB) and the tax-free Canada Child Tax Benefit (CCTB).
Under the Canada Child Benefit, families with incomes of $30,000 or less will receive $6,400 per child under age 6 and $5,400 per child per year for children aged 6 to 17.
The benefit is gradually reduced as family income increases above $30,000. For example, a family with a net income of $175,000 and two children, one age 5 and one age 7, will still receive $805 in benefits annually.
This calculator is for illustration purposes only. Your actual Canada Child Benefit will be calculated by the Canada Revenue Agency based on your 2015 income. It is assumed the children remain in the same age group from July 2016 to June 2017, the full benefit year.
