Have you received a deposit in your bank account called Canada PRO?

The Canada PRO payment is usually related to a Child and Family Benefit.

In Ontario it can possibly be the Ontario Trillium Benefit.

The OTB is made up of the Ontario Sales Tax Credit and the Ontario energy and property tax credit and/or the Northern Ontario energy credit.

In Alberta, it may be the Alberta Child and Family Benefit.

The benefit year ends in June so you will usually see this payment towards the end of June or in July.

Some will receive this as a monthly payment while others receive this as an annual payment.

To have a better understanding as to what the payment is related to, details should be available in your CRA My Account, so I suggest checking in there.
