Stop the Clawback of the NCBS from Families on Social Assistance
Ending the clawback of the National Child Benefit Supplement (NCBS) would make a big difference in the lives of families on social assistance.
When you’re already living below the poverty line, being able to keep
the approximately $115 you get every month for each of your children
would go a long way towards paying your bills. But that’s not what happens.
Every month, the federal government allows the Ontario government to clawback the NCBS from 163,726 children across the province – simply because their parents are on social assistance. It’s not right.
Get involved. Tell the provincial governments to end the clawback immediately!
Dear Premier McGuinty: Sign Petition
Taking $120 a month from children of families on social assistance is wrong. I am asking you to:
- End the clawback of the National Child Benefit Supplement from families on social assistance, now!
- Fund the reinvestment programs that work for low-income families out of other provincial and federal revenues.
- Increase the Canada Child Tax Benefit to $4900 a year.
