Starting today, low- and modest-income Canadians and families will begin receiving their new, one-time Grocery Rebate.
The Grocery Rebate will provide eligible couples with two children with up to an extra $467; single Canadians without children with up to an extra $234; and seniors with an extra $225, on average. Grocery Rebate payments are being delivered to eligible Canadians by direct deposit or cheque through the Canada Revenue Agency.
By targeting the Grocery Rebate to those who need it most, our government is delivering important inflation relief while maintaining Canada’s AAA credit rating and strong track record of fiscal responsibility.
While our plan has helped bring inflation down to its lowest level in more than two years, higher grocery prices are still a challenge for far too many Canadians. With the Grocery Rebate, our government is continuing to provide support to the Canadians who need it most.
