Donating Securities

Thanks to changes in the Income Tax Act, Canadians can now donate their publicly-traded securities or mutual funds without incurring Capital Gains tax. Donors are given a tax-deductible receipt for the full market value of the donated securities.

ACWS welcomes gifts of publicly traded securities (stocks, bonds and mutual funds) that are deemed easily marketable. ACWS may also accept private securities if they are evaluated as readily marketable.

For details on how to make a donation of securities to ACWS, please see the Frequently Asked Questions document and contact our representative broker, Edward May of MD Management at or (780) 436-1333.

Tax incentives make helping easier.
