This calculator lets you estimate the Canada Child Benefit you will receive between July 2018 and June 2019 based on your family income in 2017.
The tax-free Canada Child Benefit replaced the taxable Universal Child Care Benefit (UCCB) and the tax-free Canada Child Tax Benefit (CCTB) in July 2016.
Starting in July 2018, the benefits are indexed to inflation. The maximum benefit per child under 6 increased to $6,496 in 2018-19 from $6,400. For children aged 6 to 17, the benefit increased to $5,481 per child from $5,400. The benefit is also indexed to household income, with the first threshold rising to $30,450 from $30,000 and the second threshold rising to $65,975 from $65,000.

This calculator is for illustration purposes only. Your actual Canada Child Benefit will be calculated by the Canada Revenue Agency based on your 2017 income. It is assumed the children will remain in the same age group from July 2018 to June 2019, the full benefit year. The calculator uses the new indexed benefit and income threshold amounts as of July 2018.
