Celebrating 5 years of the Canada Child Benefit

Since 2016, the Canada Child Benefit has helped families keep up with the rising cost of living, and has helped lift nearly 435,000 children out of poverty.

Now 9 out of 10 parents have more money in their pockets to help with the cost of raising children. That’s about 1.6 million young families with more money for things like school supplies, nutritious meals, and after-school activities — whether in person or virtually.

Our Liberal government is stepping up to support families in these difficult times, and will continue to do everything it takes to make life affordable for all Canadians, grow the middle class, and build a better country for everyone.

The CCB has made a crucial impact for many Canadian families, meaning that more parents are supported and more kids get equal opportunities.
