The Canada Child Benefit

On July 20th, 2016, Canadian families will receive their first Canada Child Benefit payments.

The CCB was one of the Liberal Party’s main platform commitments, one of the reasons I was so proud to run under Justin Trudeau.

The CCB is bigger than the previous benefit. 9/10 families will receive more.

The CCB is tax free. No more clawbacks at tax time.

And the CCB is fair. The most benefits go to families who need it most. No more cheques to millionaires.

Under this new benefit, 300,00 Canadian children will be lifted out of poverty. It’s a real game changer for Canadian families, and it’s “real change” in action.
