Families who receive the Canada Child Benefit (CCB) with children under the age of six are eligible for the CCB Young Child Supplement, which provides up to four tax-free payments in 2021 up to $1,200 per child. There is no need to reapply if you are already receiving the benefit. This will be delivered at the same time you would normally receive the CCB. For a full list of Federal benefits go to the Federal Economic Response Plan.

Until March 31, 2022, families who receive Direct Funding/At Home Program basic respite can continue to use their respite funding in a flexible manner. Families do not need to provide a record of respite expense forms for agreements expiring before March 31, 2022.
