What is Ontario Trillium Benefit? Does everyone in Ontario gets this benefit?

I received some amount in my account titled as "Canada Pro" and I was wondering if anyone else would receive it too? I asked some people about it and they mentioned that it could be the Ontario Trillium Benefit. If so, can my siblings apply for it too?

The Ontario Trillium Benefit helps people pay for energy costs, and provides relief for sales and property tax.

The Ontario Trillium Benefit combines the following:

  • Ontario Sales Tax Credit
  • Ontario Energy and Property Tax Credit, and
  • Northern Ontario Energy Credit.
At the time of filing your income tax, you can choose to apply for this benefit but the government will inform you around July if you are eligible for this benefit. Not everyone will get this benefit as it was designed for helping lower income family to pay for part of the energy cost.
