This Fact Sheet provides general information about the 2017 update to the Federal Child Support Tables (Federal Tables). The Federal Tables are part of the Federal Child Support Guidelines (regulations under the Divorce Act). The Federal Tables are based on a mathematical formula that takes into account income as well as federal/provincial/territorial tax rules to produce child support amounts reflecting ability to pay. A software program that uses this formula generates basic monthly child support amounts for families of one to six or more children, for income levels in $1,000 increments (up to $150,000) for each province and territory.

Child maltreatment is a significant Canadian and global problem that can have serious physical, psychological and emotional impacts lasting long beyond childhood. To prevent and address child maltreatment, the ongoing, systematic collection of data on child abuse and neglect reported to child welfare is essential. The federal, provincial, and territorial governments recognize the importance of surveillance in providing evidence about the contexts, risk factors and types of child maltreatment to inform policy, program, service and awareness interventions. Through their child welfare ministries, the provincial and territorial governments are responsible for assisting children in need of protection; they are also the primary source of administrative data and information related to reported child maltreatment.
