Today, Premier Kathleen Wynne visited the Early Years Centre at the Thorncliffe Neighbourhood Office where she highlighted the 2013 Budget's proposed increases to the Ontario Child Benefit, which helps about one million low- to moderate-income children across the province.
The Ontario government is proposing to increase the Ontario Child Benefit's annual maximum payment by up to $210 over the next two years. This would raise the maximum payment from $1,100 to $1,310 per year for each child, helping parents with their family expenses.
In order for parents to receive this year's proposed increase of $110 this July, the Budget 2013 bill would have to be passed and proclaimed before July 1, 2013.
This proposed increase is part of the Ontario government's plan to help people with their everyday lives.
