Canada Dental Benefit for Children Under 12: Please help raise awareness for the Canada Dental Benefit. The first benefit period was a success, with 50% of eligible children in British Columbia—34,260—receiving the benefit. That’s something to smile about!
The second and final benefit period will help cover dental care costs between July 1, 2023, to June 30, 2024, and it is important that all eligible families know about the benefit and how to apply. Even families who applied during the first benefit period can re-apply for the final benefit period. Please see this factsheet for more information.
