IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE NEW BC EARLY CHILDHOOD TAX BENEFIT
 
In 2015, the BC government is introducing the new BC Early Childhood Tax Benefit to improve the affordability of child care and assist families with the cost of raising young children. The BC Early Childhood Tax Benefit, which is part of the Province’s Early Years Strategy, is a tax-free monthly payment of up to a maximum of $55 per month – or $660 dollars per year – for each child under the age of six.

This is great news for our Bankhead families! Contact Valentina or stop by her office at Bankhead between 12:30 and 2:30 p.m.

For more information on the BC Early Childhood Tax Benefit, please visit the Ministry’s website at: http://www.mcf.gov.bc.ca/childcare/tax_benefit.htm.
