I'm just wondering how it works. Do they give you the paperwork in the hospital, or do I need to go somewhere to apply? How much can I expect being unemployed and living at home (crappy situation, but the only way I wouldn't be on the streets right now)? I didn't even know about this until a couple weeks ago, and now I'm just wondering how it all works, lol.

Hi there,

The hosptial sends the application form home with you, most likely with other papers , etc.
If you have done your 05 tax return, you should get your check within the first 3 months, and it will be back paid from the 1st day of the following month (they dont do half months, etc) So lets say your baby was born Sept 2, you wouldnt get your first month until October.
It all depends on your family income with what you get. If you are making the poverty line you can expect about $250/month + $100 UCCB (childcare check). It all depends on how much you and your dh made on your 05 tax returns. The first year we had Daniel dh was at school and I wasnt working, our income was about $15K on our return, so we had the full $250. Then DH got promoted (military) and it cut more than half of what we get now for child tax.

hope that helps!

if you go to google and type in canada child tax credit, you will get the link for the calculator that will tell you how much to expect!
