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

You are automatically considered for this program when you apply for the Canada Child Benefit. If you have applied for the CCB you do not need to do anything extra.
If you use the CRA direct deposit service for your CCB payments, your provincial and territorial payments will be deposited into the same account.
