BC Family Bonus

Single parents on disability or income assistance can get the help they need to get back into the workforce.

The BC Family Bonus and the BC Earned Income Benefit are tax-free monthly payments to help low and modest income working families living in British Columbia with the cost of raising their children. Together, they make it more attractive for those on income assistance to seek work and to remain employed. Benefits from these programs are combined with the Canada Child Tax Benefit (CCTB) into a single monthly payment.

Payments are adjusted annually in July and are based on the previous year's tax returns.
