Hi All,

I came to Canada on June 2016 on a work permit ( Intra company transfer) with my wife a 2 year old kid.

As of Jun 2017 I have a SIN number and filled my income tax returns for year 2016. My wife does not have a SIN number.

My doubts are :
1/. What all steps do I have to do to apply for Canada child benefit.
2/. Do I have to apply for SIN for my wife.
3/. Do I have to file ITR for year 2016 for her.
4/. When can I expect to get CCB.

Any help or direction would be really helpful.

Thanks,
Nitin

Are you eligible?

To be eligible for the Canada child benefit (CCB), you must meet all of the following conditions:

  • You must live with the child, and the child must be under 18 years of age.
  • You must be primarily responsible for the care and upbringing of the child.
  • You must be a resident of Canada for tax purposes.
  • You or your spouse or common-law partner must be:
    • a Canadian citizen
    • a permanent resident
    • a protected person
    • a temporary resident who has lived in Canada for the previous 18 months, and who has a valid permit in the 19th month

Hi, similar situation as above:

1. Husband came in CA as PN (Oct 2018)
2. Wife has OWP (Jan 2019)
3. We have 2 children (3yo and 6yo)

I have read tht we need to reside minimum of 18mos. Question is, do we receive a LUMP-SUM of the CCB from the date of landing (DEC 2018), or the start of the CBB will be from our 19th month?

Appreciate your reply. Thanks!

You only start receiving payments after 18 months. No payments before.

Following this thread. Where do they count the 18mos? From the primary applicants nomination (PNP) or from the arrival of the kids? Pls advise
