Canada Workers Benefit (CWB)
Organization: Government of Canada
Description: The Canada workers benefit (CWB) is a refundable tax credit to help individuals and families who are working and earning a low income. The CWB has two parts: a basic amount and a disability supplement. You can claim the CWB when you file your income tax return. Eligible individuals and families can get up to half of the CWB in advance payments instead of waiting for tax time.
