Canada Child Benefits Application
includes federal, provincial, and territorial programs
Do you have to fill out this form?
Fill out this form to apply for all child benefit programs that the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) administers, including the Canada child benefit and the goods
and services tax/harmonized sales tax (GST/HST) credit. You can also use this form if you started a shared-custody situation for one or more children.
Do not fill out this form if you already applied using My Account on the CRA website or when you registered the birth of your newborn with your province or
territory (except Yukon and Nunavut).
Who should fill out this form?
The person who is primarily responsible for the care and upbringing of the child should apply (see "Primarily responsible for the care and upbringing of the
child" on page 3).
When both a female and a male parent live in the same home as the child, the female parent is usually considered to be primarily responsible for the child and
should apply. However, if the male parent is primarily responsible, he should apply and attach a signed letter from the female parent stating that he is the parent
who is primarily responsible for all the children in the home.

Step 6 – Information about the child(ren)
If the child started living with you more than 11 months ago, you need to provide supporting documents. See "What do you need to attach to this form?" on
page 5.
Primarily responsible for the care and upbringing of the child
Being primarily responsible for the care and upbringing of the child means that you are responsible for such things as supervising the child's daily activities and
needs, making sure the child's medical needs are met, and arranging for child care, when necessary, when the child lives with you.
Shared custody
This normally happens after a separation or a divorce. We consider you to be in a shared-custody situation if the child lives part of the time with you and the rest
of the time with another individual at a different address on a more or less equal basis.
For more information on shared custody, see Booklet T4114, Canada Child Benefit, under "Do you share custody of a child?".
Do not give information about a child for whom you have already applied, unless the child left your care and has now returned, or the percentage of time the
child is in your care has changed.

Unless you tell us otherwise, the information you give on this form will be used for all programs, including federal, provincial, and territorial programs.
If your application is not complete, it may not be processed, or it may be delayed or denied.
Once we have processed your application, we will send you a Canada child benefit notice. The notice will show if you are eligible, how much you will get (if
applicable), and what information was used to calculate the amount. Our goal is to issue your notice or payment, if applicable, within 11 weeks of receiving your
filled out paper application.
We may also review your situation at a later date to confirm that the information you gave us has not changed.

banking information, go to canada.ca/cra-direct-deposit.

law partner, they also need to do their taxes every year.
Make sure your personal information is up to date with us, as this could affect your payments.

If your spouse or common-law partner is a non-resident of Canada during any part of the year, you will have to fill out Form CTB9, Income of Non-Resident
Spouse or Common-Law Partner. Send it with your tax return after each year (or part of the year) that they were a non-resident of Canada.
