Note: The Amount for Children is discontinued for the 2015 and subsequent tax years.
The Amount for Children (or Child Tax Credit) was a non-refundable tax credit for parents of children who were under 18 years of age at the end of the year. This tax credit has been replaced by the enhanced Universal Child Care Benefit (UCCB). Click this link for information on the enhanced UCCB.
Don’t forget to claim any fitness or arts amounts you paid and are entitled to for the cost of registering your children in eligible programs.
