Why we need it
What we’ll do
What you can do
For 10 years, Stephen Harper has been ignoring the people who do most of the heavy lifting in our economy. Middle class Canadians are working longer hours and falling further behind. Canada’s economic success depends on a thriving middle class. That’s why we have a 3 Point Plan to grow the economy and help middle class Canadians.
How we’ll fix it
Our plan provides middle class Canadian families more money to help raise their kids.
A Liberal government will send families a tax-free, monthly Canada Child Benefit worth up to $533 a month per child. 9/10 families will get more from the Liberal plan.
Find out how much you’ll benefit
We’re going to give a tax break to middle class Canadians by asking the wealthiest Canadians to pay a little more.
Middle class Canadians could save up to $670 per person each year, with a maximum benefit of nearly $1350 for a couple.

“We need to remember that economic growth is not only about prosperity. It’s about building a country that gives everyone a real and fair chance to succeed. That is what history has taught us, and it’s what our future demands of us.”
“The CCB creates a guaranteed annual income for children, reduces the welfare wall on current benefit plans and simplifies the tax code. What’s not to love?”
“The Liberals’ proposed Canada Child Benefit (CCB) is a historic advance in income security policy for families. It is a win-win initiative that will fight child poverty and boost the incomes of the middle class.”
“The LPC is committed to cutting the income tax rate for the second tax bracket and introducing the Canada Child Benefit. These proposals would simplify and increase the fairness of the tax system for individuals, which the Conservatives manipulated for partisan gain.”
