Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) is trying to reach out to Indigenous families by creating posters for the Canada Child Benefit in Ojibway and Plains Cree.
The Canada Child Benefit is a tax-free monthly payment for families with kids under the age of 18. Families can get up to $6400 per year for each child under the age of 6 and $5400 per year for each child aged 6 to 17.
To apply for the CCB, you need a social insurance number and have to file your income tax and benefit return. If you didn’t get it done this tax season, don’t forget it for next year!
