Canada Child Benefit Calculator

How much could you benefit?

*Please Note:

This calculation provides an illustration of the child benefits a family could receive. A different definition of income (adjusted family net income) is used to calculate actual entitlement, and would generally be lower than household income. As a result, this calculator could underestimate how much a family will receive under the Canada Child Benefit. The Canada Revenue Agency will calculate a family's actual entitlement to the new Canada Child Benefit based on the definition of adjusted family net income in the Income Tax Act.
As well, this amount represents federal child benefit amounts only.  It does not include any provincial/territorial child benefits to which you may be entitled.


(1) The children remain in the same age group throughout the full 2016-17 benefit year.
(2) The children are not eligible for the Disability Tax Credit, and thus the Child Disability Benefit is not taken into account.
