The Canadian Government has announced it will be releasing an additional GST payment for all Canadians currently recieving GST payments.
This additional payment is scheduled to be released in May sometime.
You will not need to apply for it, if you already receive GST payments. This could mean up to an additional $400 for a single person and $600 for a couple.
Here’s what it says on the Government website:
Special Goods and Services Tax credit payment
We are providing a one-time special payment by early May through the Goods and Services Tax credit for low- and modest-income families.
The average additional benefit will be close to $400 for single individuals and close to $600 for couples
There is no need to apply for this payment. If you are eligible, you will get it automatically.
