Free 2018 International Student Handbook
As one of the most well-established countries in the world, Canada has many unique aspects of child welfare. In the Canadian social welfare system, the most familiar to immigrants is the “milk gold”. Recently, the Canadian Federal Family, Child and Social Development Minister Duslow announced that from July 20, 2018, the Canadian federal government will once again raise the standard for Child Welfare (Canadian Child Benefit). Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau personally introduced the rise in milk gold on Twitter. He said that this is to let the milk gold keep up with the rhythm of rising living costs.
How can I get milk?
New immigrants who want to receive milk must apply to the Canadian Federal Tax Department. The Federal Tax Department will determine your applicant's eligibility and send you a federal financial grant. The province will then send you the child's milk. If your family's condition changes, you must notify the Federal Tax Department to reassess your eligibility and make adjustments. If you are separated for more than 90 days, you can re-determine your separation status and increase the amount of milk for children. With a work visa, a student visa can also be applied for. However, you cannot get a tourist visa, because a tourist visa cannot legally work to pay taxes.
How much can I get?
In the year 2018 to 2019, Canadian children under the age of 6 receive a maximum of $6,496 in tax-free benefits per year; children between the ages of 6 and 17 receive $5,481 in tax-free benefits. Single-parent parents with low income raise two children alone. A tax-free benefit of $12,992 per year is available. Calculated on the basis of a salary of 15 Canadian dollars per hour, it is equivalent to the government's weekly subsidy to parents for two days.
Take a family of four with children under the age of 6 as an example:
• The family's annual income is less than 30,000 Canadian dollars, and can receive 12,992 Canadian dollars a year, 1083 Canadian dollars per month.
• The family's annual income is 50,000 Canadian dollars, receiving 10,252 Canadian dollars a year, 854 Canadian dollars per month.
• The family earns $100,000 a year and receives $6,171 a year for $514 a month.
• The family earns $150,000 a year and receives $3,278 a year for $273 a month.
• Family income is more than $190,000, no.
Take a child under 6 years old and a 6-17 year old child at home:
• Family annual income of less than 30,000 Canadian dollars, can receive 11977 Canadian dollars per year, 998 Canadian dollars per month.
• Family annual income of 50,000 Canadian dollars, receiving 9236 Canadian dollars per year, 770 Canadian dollars per month.
• The family earns $100,000 a year and receives $5,156 a year for $430 a month.
• Family annual income of 150,000 Canadian dollars, receiving 2,263 Canadian dollars per year, 189 Canadian dollars per month.
• Family annual income is more than 190,000 Canadian dollars, no.
This benefit is very attractive to all Chinese parents, because China, which fully liberalizes the second child policy, has almost no benefits in the child support phase, except for reimbursement of part of the maternity medical expenses. I believe that this will be a major reason for attracting Chinese immigrants in the future.
According to statistics, starting from July 20, 2018, all childcare families in Canada receive an average of $2,300 in child welfare each year.
Canadian Federal Family, Child and Social Development Minister Duslow said that the Canadian federal government has spent $23.3 billion on child welfare expenses since 2016, which has helped many children participate in sports, music courses, and clothing and food. And to help 300,000 Canadian children stay away from poverty and the 2016-2018 Child Benefit, each child under the age of 6 earns a maximum of $6,400 a year, a new standard of $96, and a child between the ages of 6 and 17 Earn $5,400 and the new standard increased by $81.
