I'm posting a question to any mama's out there who can help me with a few questions regarding social assistance in Canada. A friend of mine is currently on assistance, and I'm wondering..... if she gets child support does she get to keep it or is it deducted? I know if the cheque is made out to her, it'll most likely be taken.... but if it's made out to the baby and put into the baby's own account? Also, is Child Tax Benefit Deducted???
I'm trying to understand this hoopla of a system, and it appears to take everything that could help a person get ahead!!!!!!
