Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

We can appreciate that you would be interested in this type of information.

You can find some detailed information regarding the Canada Child Benefit in our Settlement.Org What is the Canada Child Benefit (CCB)?

You can also find some information specific to the eligibility requirements on the Government of Canada website.

To get the 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.

Hello everyone

My ex-wife left the country a year ago with my two daughters 5 and 7 y.o. She's contacting me asking if she is still entitled to receive Canada child benefits for the kids. Is she entitled even though she is abroad? I haven't find specific info for this case.

Thanks in advance for any info.
