Hello

Me and my wife had the birth of our first baby just few days ago in Mississauga. I have registered the birth online and applied for birth certificate, SIN number and child benefit online yesterday. We only arrived in Canada as PR in mid march and have not filed a tax return yet.

I am a little confused about the child benefit. Me and(or) my wife need to submit a separate application for that or provide any details? Do we need to register online with CRA for payment of these benefits? We have not filed our first tax return as it will be done beginning of 2019.

Should i just wait for a reply from the government concerning the child benefit, for which i applied during the online birth registration?
