Ministerial Order No. 2016-01 Exemption of Alberta Child Benefit

POLICY

Retroactive adjustments to the Canada Child Benefit, Canada Child Tax Benefit (CCTB) or National Child Benefit Supplement (NCBS) adjustments are exempt unless the client has entered into an agreement to repay any or all of a Temporary Child Supplement Allowance (NCB Temporary Replacement Benefit) paid in advance of the retroactive payment.
