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:

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.
