Grocery Rebate Bill (C-46)

The government introduced the C-46 Rebate due to an increment in inflation. Everything was getting expensive and the local public was having difficulties in fulfilling basic needs and adjusting their spending accordingly. It is a way of government to make things a little easier for the citizens of the nation. The Grocery Rebate Bill commenced in 2023. The officials issued the rebate on 5th July 2023, alongside the July 2023 quarterly GST/HST credit payment.

The amount provided under the Grocery Rebate was equivalent to double the GST/HST credit amount beneficiaries received for January 2023.

  4. Why is it that only low income earners get any help what so ever. My family and I have not qualified for any money from the government ever. The middle class foots the bill for all this free money, but reaps not one reward. Who is gonna pay back all this money they are giving away? The middle class that’s who. We are hit just as hard as everyone else. But no one gives a crap. They just keep standing there with their hand out, waiting for money to fall in their lap. And it’s likely that it will fall in their lap. With no payback or consequences or concerns about how that money is going to be paid back. They should be spending money on infrastructure, most all our bridges, tunnels, roads, and hyways need serious upgrades and repairs. Soon they will see all these things will fail, causing harm. Lastly funding should be spent on our education system, the enviroment and taking care of the elderly, so as to not cause harm to them and provide a higher standard of care. So what happened with covid will never cause harm again. These things benefit everyone not just a priveledged few. As it should be.

  7. For your information not all of us lower income people have our hands out for free money government or otherwise, some of us are vets or solders coming back home with very little to live on or disabled people whom suffer low incomes for differnt reasons, not all of us should be judged based off of the sole fact we have low incomes, You don’t know our situations nor should u assume that you do…. And till you walk a mile in our shoes you should keep your mouths shut…. But I do agree certain amounts should be going where it is needed most, vets, elderly, disabled, children’s hospitals, hospitals in general, roads and bridges…. but be focused on what the priorities are and should be….Rant Over….ty for reading xx

  8. No, you don’t have to apply for the grocery rebate. It comes automatically with the gst. And why is the lady from the middle class complaining about not getting the rebate. Does she not get that a single senior living just on a pension can’t afford the high cost of groceries?

  9. They talk about the amount of methane cattle put into the atmosphere, the BS that comes out of the Liberal Government’s mouth every day is ten fold. The best thing Trudeau could do for climate change is shut TFU and quit polluting the air we breathe. They continue to announce all these benefits but I never see them and my monthly income is $1890. Thankfully I don’t have anyone that I have to support. All I know is that if this so called grocery benefit doesn’t come with the GST payment as announced my inner WOLF is going on the war path.

  10. The site did say you have to apply. Read it again.
    I feel for seniors who don’t have cra account or even a cell phone or computer. There are so much money available only for peopke who know technology. To me that’s discrimination.

  16. Jane: Do you think the Conservatives would give you Grocery money.? The Conservatives are for the rich people and the business people. They give the business people tax breaks. When President Regan was in office in the USA low income people were feeding their babies with Chocolate Quick and water.

  17. Groceries should not be as expensive as they are. If they would smarten the fuck up and lower fuel costs there would be no need for a grocery rebate. It’s a crock my bill for a family of 5 has doubled and don’t buy half the stuff I used to. The bare necessities it’s sad when you have to eat less to feed your kids. This economy is shit and we need to take it back. There are so many that are struggling and loosing there houses and can’t pay for everything that they did 2 years ago. It makes me sick.

  21. Wow! $234. Has to do you all year. Groceries are expensive every month. $234 isn’t a lot it won’t cut down on your grocery bill. Trudeau you got extra money cut out for old age security. Where’s the extra money to help LOW INCOME FAMILIES every month. There isn’t any . It’s not only seniors who are struggling.
