Helping children and families get ahead
Starting October 1, 2020, nearly 300,000 families will benefit from the new BC Child Opportunity Benefit, a tax-free payment for families with children under 18 years of age. The new monthly payments will help families with basic necessities like food and clothing, further reduce child care costs, and make opportunities like sports and arts possible.
How it works:
- Up to $1,600 a year for families with one child.
- Up to $2,600 a year for families with two children.
- Up to $3,400 a year for families with three children.
