What is the Additional CESG?

Home / FAQ / What is the Additional CESG?

Additional CESG is a supplement to the Basic CESG, and the additional amount is based on
the net family income of the child’s primary caregiver. The primary caregiver is the person
who receives the Canada Child Tax Benefit (CCTB). The net family income is reported on
the primary caregiver’s CCTB statement provided by Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) each
July. The Additional CESG amount can change over time as the net family income changes.
