It's really quite astonishing, actually. If you look at from 2015 to today, we've actually cut child poverty in half in Canada, and we've cut poverty rates in half, which is one of the single largest jumps in Canadian history in the last seven and a half years. It's quite impressive.
If you look at a low-income child under the age of six, the lowest-income child, that family could get up to $7,000 a year in Canada child benefit payments, and if their child is enrolled in child care, that could be an additional $6,000 a year in savings. This is really tangible, and then if you add the dental benefit on to that, that's another $650 a year. If you add the climate action incentive rebate on there, we're talking about hundreds of dollars more.
It is really something, the amount of support that this government has provided to low-income Canadians. It doesn't mean that there isn't more work to do. It doesn't mean that people aren't still struggling, but in terms of the actual tangible impact on people, the numbers don't lie. It's quite impressive.
What I would say is that in my travels across the country, what I've heard consistently from parents is that the child care investments and the Canada child benefit are life-changing for them. They say it's transformational, and they're so unbelievably grateful for it, because it's making a difference in the life they can provide for their children every single day.
