Customer: Hi,
JA: Hello. How can I help?
Customer: We're moving over to Ontario with my family in August 2021, my wife has been accepted on a 4 year course at Sheridan and we have all been accepted for our Visa's and work visa's until 2025. We're moving from the UK, have 3 children, 13-16 & 18 and I have a work permit. We just need clarity on what if any benefits we would be entitled to on arrival as we have in the UK. I will be working full time and my wife will be working 16-20 hours as her permit states
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer about this?
Customer: No, this is our first contact
JA: What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: All Canadian Immigration steps have been approved and Study/Work permits approved.
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: No

Good morning – you would be able to apply for the “Canada Child Benefit” after living in Canada for a minimum of 18 months.  This is calculated based on your income and number of children. Here is a link with more information on this benefit: https://www.canada.ca/en/revenue-agency/services/forms-publications/publications/t4114/canada-child-benefit.html#CCB_Eligible

Thank you for this, can you also confirm if there any other benefits we may be entitled to? such as here in the UK we have Tax Credits etc. Just so we can plan financially what our income and outgoings will potentially be. Best Regards, Duncan

That’s the biggest one when it comes to families with children. There are some smaller credits if you are a very low income family, but those are available when you file you first file your taxes and usually not earlier.

Customer
Hi Joey, Really appreciate your help and advice, it's pretty much as we expected but always good to get confirmation. Best Regards, Duncan
