Who benefits most from the new child-care benefit?
As Canadian families receive their first Canada Child Benefit payments — the federal government's first salvo in a multi-billion-dollar effort to beef up monthly help for parents — most households will receive more money than they did under a handful of now-defunct programs. But the bulk of new federal spending, which amounts to $4.6 billion in the CCB's first year, is headed for middle-income families — a reflection of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's oft-repeated desire to offer "real help to Canada's middle class."
