Families with a household income under $90,000 need to provide the Canada Revenue Agency with the name of their licensed dental-care practitioner and the month of the planned appointment.
They must also attest that the child does not have private dental insurance and that they will keep their receipts.
Officials with Health Canada, who provided a briefing on the condition they not be named, say families will not be penalized if they don’t use the full amount.
However, families who provide false information, can’t provide receipts or don’t use any of the money for dental care could face a maximum fine of $5,000.
