What Documents To Provide?

Families with net adjusted income (Line 236 on your income tax) below the current federal Low Income Cut-Off (LICO) guidelines (see table below) are eligible for funding of up to a maximum of $400 per child per calendar year. 

Family Size Family Income (based on Line 236)
1 person (e.g. independent youth) $22,759
2 people (e.g. parent + 1 child) $28,332
3 people $34,831
4 people $42,290
5 people $47,963
6 people $54,096
7 or more people $60,227



We will need to see your Canada Child Benefit (CCB-OCB) Notice (from the most recent tax year) which shows your marital status and the number of children in the family to verify family size, as well as your family's net adjusted income (Line 236). If you don't have the CCB notice, then an alternative would be either the Ontario Trillium Benefit (OTB) notice or GST-HST Credit notice.
