Extra Payment Coming on May 20, 2020
(Canada’s COVID-19 Economic Response Plan)
For over 3.5 million families with children, who may also require additional support, the Government is proposing to increase the maximum annual Canada Child Benefit (CCB) payment amounts, only for the 2019-20 benefit year, by $300 per child. The overall increase for families receiving CCB will be approximately $550 on average; these families will receive an extra $300 per child as part of their May 2020 payment. In total, this measure will deliver almost $2 billion in extra support.
The $300 extra payment is the maximum amount you might receive as the CCB falls as income increases, based on the two income thresholds ($31,120 and $67,426) shown above.
Canada Child Benefit
This calculator is for illustration purposes only. Your actual Canada Child Benefit will be calculated by the Canada Revenue Agency based on your total family income reported on your 2018 tax returns. It is assumed the children will remain in the same age group from July 2019 to June 2020, the full benefit year. The calculator uses the new indexed benefit and income threshold amounts as of July 2019.
