Child support in Ontario is typically calculated based on the federal and provincial Child Spport Guidelines. These Guidelines are designed to ensure that children receive appropriate financial support from their parents following a separation or divorce. A general overview of the key factors involved in calculating child support in Ontario are as follows:

1. Determining income;
2. Calculating sources of gross income;
3. Ascertaining basic child support amount (otherwise known as Table child support);
4. Ascertaining special and extraordinary expenses (otherwise known as section 7 expenses);
5. Parenting time (previously referred to as Access); and
6. Any other relevant factors that may affect the quantum of child support (such as a claim for undue hardship).

Keep in mind that this is a general overview, and child support calculations can become more complex based on individual circumstances and any variations in income, parenting arrangements, or special expenses.
