    You need to file your 2020 tax return to get it. But almost everyone is eligible in these provinces.

    You don't need income either to get it. Just file a Zero dollar return.

    Amount Ontario Manitoba Saskatchewan Alberta
    Single adult,
    or first adult in a couple1
    $ 300 $360 $ 500 $ 490
    Second adult in a couple,
    or first child of a single parent2
    $ 150 $180 $ 250 $ 245
    Each child under 18
    (starting with the second child for single parents)3
    $ 75 $ 90 $ 125 $ 123
    Example: Baseline amount for a family of four $ 600 $ 720 $ 1,000 $ 981

    If you don't live in urban areas, and live in rural and even semi rural areas you will get 10% more to the above amount.

    It goes by postal code. CRA will decide urban and rural areas.

    Thanks for the reminder about the upcoming credits that residents can get on their next income tax return filing, @tjthemanto ! Will use my credit to pay for a couple of things. Now I wait to see when my income tax package will come in the mail, so I can get it sent to CRA by mid-Feb. for quickest ever assessment by post.

    It gets tricky figuring out which entity's version of rural addresses apply to various things like property taxes, utility rates and income tax credits. Every entity has their own definition of rural.

    Don't forget Work From Home credit, not rebate, which you can apply this year.

    File a return even if you have NO income to get this Climate rebate.

    Everyone will get it, but you still need to file your 2020 tax return.

    The Government of Canada also intends to shift Climate Action Incentive payments to quarterly amounts paid through the Canada Revenue Agency’s benefit system, as early as 2022. Details will follow at a later date.
    Just took a look again and realized that the lump sum option might disappear next year. The lump sum is helpful to have in spring if one is making decisions for heat relief, gardening or tree purchases or even donations to entities helping to improve the environment (or even governmental debt repayment).

    Yes, another reminder that the CAI is likely moving to a quarterly installment format.

    The CAI rebate (Line 45110) can be claimed on your income tax return and it will be automatically applied to your balance owing for the year or added to any refund you are entitled to. These rebate payments will move to quarterly payments starting in mid-2022. That means if you're wondering about carbon tax rebate cheque dates, it depends on how soon you're able to file your tax return. The sooner you file your return, the sooner you'll get your rebate. You can usually start filing your taxes once you get your T4 on the last week of February.

    End of sprees on big bags of garden soil to fix the landscaping issue! I certainly could use one big bag this month-parts of yard have small craters or dips!
