The Canada Child Tax Benefit (CCTB) is one of the federal government's most important ways of providing financial assistance for families with children. It is a non-taxable benefit delivered through the tax system for eligible families with children under age 18. The CCTB has three components:

  • The base benefit, which is targeted to low- and middle-income families.
  • The National Child Benefit supplement, which provides additional assistance to low-income families.
  • The Child Disability Benefit (CDB), which provides additional assistance to virtually all families caring for a child eligible for the disability tax credit (DTC).
