Hello there,

You can find information on the Canada Child Tax Benefit in our Settlement.Org What is the Canada Child Tax Benefit? article.

Here is an excerpt,

"You have to be eligible to receive the CCTB. One of the requirements is that you are a Canadian resident for tax purposes. This is not the same as residency for immigration purposes."

You can find out more about what exactly it means to be a Canadian resident for tax purposes in our Settlement.Org What is the Canada Child Tax Benefit? article.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.

Hello,

Thanks for sharing your question with us.

According to the Canada Revenue Agencywebsite,

"You must be a resident of Canada for tax purposes. We consider you to be a resident of Canada when you establish sufficient residential ties in Canada. "

You can confirm that you are a resident for tax purposes by reading the Determination of an Individual's Residence Status document on the Canada Revenue Agency website.

You can also call for personal and general tax information by telephone, by calling:

1-800-267-6999.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.

Hi,

I am a Canadian citizen and I plan to send my 2 year old daughter in the Philippines with the care of my aunt as I am studying full time right now. Will she still be receiving her child tax benefit while outside Canada for 1 year?

Thanks

Hi gandaleraj,

Thanks for sharing your question and situation with us. We can appreciate that this is a confusing situation.

You can read more about the Child Tax Benefit (CCTB) in our article found here

According to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) website:

quote:

To get the CCTB, 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 the person primarily responsible for the care and upbringing of the child.



You may want to contact the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) for more information about your specific situation and to confirm the information provided above.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.

hi,
All of my family members and me are the citizen of Canada.
I have plan to visit my home country with kids for several months while my husband will stay in canada.
Am I eligible for child tax benefit while i am out of Canada with kids during that time period?


Thanks
naila
