It's not really dedicated to child care. It is issued to all families, even if there is a stay-at-home parent, or if the children are cared for by grandparents during the day, etc. Familiies that have no child care costs still receive the benefit.

The only thing that ties the benefit to child care is the name. There is no legal obligation to dedicate it to daycare fees. Thus, the benefit is included in total income, just like the CCTB.
