As of July 20, 2016, families will start receiving the new Canada Child Benefit, which was introduced by the Liberal Government to replace existing credits and benefits. The maximum benefit, which will be payable to families with less than $30,000 of net income, will be $6,400 per child under the age of 6, and $5,400 for children aged 6 through 17. The Canada Revenue Agency has a quick and easy calculator to assist you in determining the benefit to which you are entitled. It can be found on their website by clicking here.
