Canada Child Benefit going up July 20th, 2019.

Hard-working families in Avalon deserve to be able to provide the best start in life for their children, and our government is focused on helping the children and families who need it most.

During 2016-2017 $47,974,000 in CCB payments were made to families in Avalon giving them more money to help pay for things such as healthy food, sports programs, and music lessons and in 2017-2018 that number increased to $48,412,000 for Avalon families.

In July 2018, the Canada Child Benefit was increased to keep up with the cost of living and starting on July 20th, 2019, the CCB will be increased AGAIN.

Canada’s poverty rate is at the lowest level in Canadian history and thanks to the CCB, we have lifted nearly 300,000 children out of poverty.
