Hi sorry I have been mia for a while.

I was just wondering what are my financial rights as a Canadian?

I will be delivering my baby soon but I have no income. I live alone (my parents provided us a house) with my husband who cannot work [at the moment] due to other restrictions and I cannot work either because of the baby. Aside from social assistance, what are my other rights for me and my family? Such as child tax benefit etc.

Also how soon can you apply for child tax benefit, universal tax benefit etc.?

I would really really appreciate it if you guys can help. Thank you so much.

Have you had the baby already?
