The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) will use the information from your Canada Child Benefit (CCB) application to determine your eligibility for these programs.
If you are eligible, the amount of your payments will be calculated based on information from the tax returns that you and your spouse or common-law partner file.
If you share the custody of a child, you will get 50% of the provincial payment that you would have received if the child lived with you all of the time.
Social Insurance Number
- confirmation of SIN letter
- plastic SIN card (non-expired)
You will automatically be assessed for this benefit when you apply for the Canada Child Benefit. You do not need to apply separately for the New Brunswick Child Tax Benefit.
