The Prime Minister of Canada took to Twitter on Monday to make an announcement that will affect 11 million households.

According to Trudeau for the next six months, Canadians will be seeing some relief when it comes to paying the bills.


The goods and services tax/harmonized sales tax (GST/HST) credit is a tax-free quarterly payment that helps individuals and families with low and modest incomes offset the GST or HST that they pay.

Those that have auto-deposit will see start to see payments on Friday while those that have cheques will be sent out on Friday.

You are automatically considered for the GST/HST credit when you file your taxes.
