The Government of Québec has stated that it agrees with the general principles of the National Child Benefit (NCB). Québec chose not to participate in the NCB because it wanted to assume control over income support for children in Québec; however, it has adopted a similar approach. Like other Canadians, Québecers have access to the Canada Child Tax Benefit. They also benefit from the considerable investments and reinvestments made by the Government of Québec, under its family policy, to provide services for families and children.
