Canada Child Tax Benefit (CCTB)

The Canada child tax benefit (CCTB) is a non-taxable amount paid monthly to help eligible families with the cost of raising children under 18 years of age.

The CCTB may include the child disability benefit (CDB), a monthly benefit providing financial assistance for qualified families caring for children with severe and prolonged mental or physical impairments.

Also included with the CCTB is the national child benefit supplement (NCBS), a monthly benefit for low-income families with children. The NCBS is the Government of Canada's contribution to the national child benefit, a joint initiative of federal, provincial, and territorial governments, and First Nations.
