Do people with children get more money?

If you have children, you might be able to get more money through the "Family Supplement". To qualify for the Family Supplement, you or your spouse or common-law partner must receive the Canada Child Benefit (CCB), and your annual family income must be less than $25,921.

The Family Supplement can increase your benefits up to a maximum of 80% of your earnings, but no higher than $595 per week. Only one spouse or partner at a time can get the Family Supplement.
