The Federal Child Support Guidelines include tables of monthly child support amounts for each province and territory, and the rules for calculating the child support amounts. These tables were updated and came into force on May 1, 2006.

These Simplified Tables provide an easy method to determine child support for incomes rounded to the nearest $100. They are based on the Regulation Tables, which give the monthly child support amounts in $1000 increments of income and a percentage to calculate child support amounts between the increments to be added to the base amounts.


The Department of Justice Canada has a toll-free number for information on the Guidelines. Call 1-888-373-2222. In the National Capital Region, call (613) 946-2222.
