  • In addition to the support allowance, families receive a monthly payment for each child under 19 years of age. Families receive one or both of:
    • a federally administered child benefits cheque; 
    • a top-up amount from the ministry if their Family Bonus component of the child benefits cheque is less than the Family Bonus top-up supplement rates in the General Supplements rate table or the child is ineligible for the federal payment.
  • Families of two or more that include someone on Old Age Security (OAS) are entitled to a maximum shelter rate for the family size.
  • Shelter increments continue to increase by an additional $35 for each additional dependant after unit size 7.
