The interim Canada Dental Benefit is intended to help lower dental costs for eligible families earning less than $90,000 per year.
Parents and guardians may be eligible if they pay for dental care for a child under 12 years old who does not have access to a private dental insurance plan.
Depending on your adjusted family net income, a tax-free payment of $260, $390, or $650 is available for each eligible child. You can apply for a maximum of 2 payments per child.
Applications are open until June 30, 2024 for:
- dental care received between July 1, 2023 and June 30, 2024
- one additional payment if you meet the criteria
You can no longer apply for the original payment for dental care received between October 1, 2022 and June 30, 2023.
Benefit payments are administered by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).
