What financial benefits can new immigrants get in Canada?

Rounding it up

  • Immigration is a big decision. Luckily, the Canadian government provides benefits that can ease the transition.

  • For example, the Canada Child Benefit (CCB) is designed to offset some of the cost of raising children under 18.

  • Goods and services tax/harmonized sales tax (GST/HST) credit helps low and moderate income individuals reduce some of the taxes that they pay on goods and services.

  • Your province or territory will also offer distinct benefits for its residents. Apply for any of these benefits as soon as you receive your social insurance number.
