A Venn diagram illustrates the relationship between the Canada Child Tax Benefit (CCTB) and the National Child Benefit (NCB).

The diagram is composed of three circles aligned horizontally. The left circle illustrates the base benefit of the CCTB, provided to both low- and middle-income families with children. In 2006-2007, the Government of Canada provided $5.9 billion through the base benefit of the CCTB.

The middle circle illustrates the NCB Supplement, provided to low-income families with children. It shows that in 2006-2007, the Government of Canada provided $3.5 billion through the NCB Supplement. The NCB Supplement, combined with the base benefit of the CCTB, comprise the CCTB system. The NCB Supplement is also part of the NCB initiative.

The right circle illustrates the NCB reinvestments and additional investments by provinces, territories and First Nations. This circle overlaps with the NCB Supplement. The area of overlap is the provincial, territorial and First Nations reinvestments, which were $652.4 million in 2006-2007. The remainder of the circle represents additional investments by provinces, territories and First Nations, which were $181.2 million in 2006-2007.
