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 2020 tax returns. It is assumed the children will remain in the same age group from July 2021 to June 2022, the full benefit year. The calculator uses the new indexed benefit and income threshold amounts as of July 2021.
