Hi, just checking in on this one. Did you get your payments retroactive? We moved to Canada in May 2019, my husband is Canadian and so are our kids (5 and 3 yo). Hubby has been working full-time since we arrived, and we only now applied for the child benefits starting from the date of our arrival and I am wondering if we will get the benefits starting from May 2019.
