Speaking today to the nation, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced more assistance for families with children during the ongoing pandemic.

The government is supplementing this month’s Canada Child Benefit (CCB) to provide families with an additional $300 per child.

“This is a tough time right now to be raising kids,” Trudeau said. “Right now, you should be able to focus on keeping your family safe, not worrying about the bills.”

“This is money for whatever you need, whether it’s online tutoring or groceries,” the prime minister added.

According to the federal government, this will result in approximately $550 more for the average family.

Residents who already receive the CCB are reminded that they do not need to re-apply.

More information about the Canada Child Benefit and other financial benefits can be found at the government’s website.
