The Ontario Child Benefit is administered by the Ontario Ministry of Children and Youth Services. It is a monthly benefit paid to low- and moderate- income families. Eligibility is based on the number of children in your family under the age of 18 and your net income. You may be eligible if you:

  • have a child under 18 years old and are in a low-income family
  • have filed your income tax return, and so has your spouse or common-law partner
  • are registered for the Federal Canada Child Tax Benefit
  • are a resident of Ontario

The Canada Revenue Agency will automatically review your eligibility for the benefit once you and your spouse/common law partner's income tax returns from the previous year are assessed and you have registered for the Canada Child Tax Benefit. If you are eligible, the Ontario Child Benefit will be included with Canada Child Tax Benefit and National Child Benefit Supplement monthly payments beginning in July 2008.
