Part 1: Newcomers and the Canada Child Benefit
This lunch and learn will clarify some common misconceptions about the Canada Child Benefit (CCB) as it applies to newcomers.

This series will provide community workers, particularly those who are new to the settlement sector, with the information needed to determine whether clients are eligible for the CCB.
