The next measure is found in clauses 12 and 35 to 38 of the bill. It relates to improving access to the new Canada workers benefit.
Budget 2018 announced the introduction of the Canada workers benefit, which replaces the former working income tax benefit. The first budget implementation bill of 2018 contained the introduction of the new CWB, as well as the enhancement of the program relative to the former working income tax benefit. It also announced that it would be available even in situations where an individual had not applied for it.
Previously, there was a requirement that to obtain the working income tax benefit, an eligible individual would have to apply for it by filling out schedule 6 on their tax returns. That, unfortunately, led to a lot of individuals who were qualified, who were eligible but just didn't know about the program and didn't fill out the correct form, simply not obtaining the tax credits to which they were entitled. This measure would ensure that even in situations where a qualifying individual does not apply for the Canada workers benefit, the Canada Revenue Agency would be able to assess the individual as qualifying for the benefit and provide it to them so that it's available for all Canadians who are eligible to receive it.
I'll just mention quickly, to fill out the clause numbering of the bill, that clauses 13, 18 and 19 contain measures relating to the mechanism of delivery for climate action incentive payments. My understanding is that those will be discussed by a separate committee, but I want to fill out those clause numbers so there are no gaps.
