PART 1
Amendments to the Income Tax Act and to Related Legislation
R.‍S.‍, c. 1 (5th Supp.‍)
Income Tax Act
2(1) Paragraph 52(3)‍(a) of the Income Tax Act is replaced by the following:
(a) where the stock dividend is a dividend,
(i) in the case of a shareholder that is an individual, the amount of the stock dividend, and
(ii) in any other case, the total of all amounts each of which is
(A) the amount, if any, by which
(I) the amount that is the lesser of the amount of the stock dividend and its fair market value
exceeds
(II) the amount of the dividend that the shareholder may deduct under subsection 112(1) in computing the shareholder’s taxable income, except any portion of the dividend that, if paid as a separate dividend, would not be subject to subsection 55(2) because the amount of the separate dividend would not exceed the amount of the income earned or realized by any corporation — after 1971 and before the safe-income determination time for the transaction, event or series of transactions or events as part of which the dividend is received — that could reasonably be considered to contribute to the capital gain that could be realized on a disposition at fair market value, immediately before the dividend, of the share on which the dividend is received, and
(B) the amount determined by the formula
A + B
where
A
is the amount of the deemed gain under paragraph 55(2)‍(c) in respect of that stock dividend, and
B
is the amount, if any, by which the amount of the reduction under paragraph 55(2.‍3)‍(b) in respect of that stock dividend to which paragraph 55(2)‍(a) would otherwise apply exceeds the amount determined for clause (A) in respect of that dividend;
(2) Subsection (1) applies to stock dividends received after April 20, 2015, except that, in respect of stock dividends that are declared after April 20, 2015 and before July 31, 2015, and that are received before September 30, 2015,
(a) clause 52(3)‍(a)‍(ii)‍(A), as enacted by subsection (1), is to be read as follows:
(A) the lesser of the amount of the stock dividend and its fair market value, and
(b) the description of B in clause 52(3)‍(a)‍(ii)‍(B), as enacted by subsection (1), is to be read without reference to the words “to which paragraph 55(2)‍(a) would otherwise apply”.
3(1) Subparagraph 53(1)‍(b)‍(ii) of the Act is replaced by the following:
(ii) the portion of the total determined under subparagraph (i) that relates to dividends in respect of which the taxpayer was permitted a deduction under subsection 112(1) in computing the taxpayer’s taxable income, except any portion of the dividend that, if paid as a separate dividend, would not be subject to subsection 55(2) because the amount of the separate dividend would not exceed the amount of the income earned or realized by any corporation — after 1971 and before the safe-income determination time for the transaction, event or series of transactions or events as part of which the dividend is received — that could reasonably be considered to contribute to the capital gain that could be realized on a disposition at fair market value, immediately before the dividend, of the share on which the dividend is received;
(2) Subsection (1) applies to dividends received after April 20, 2015.
4(1) Paragraph (j) of the definition proceeds of disposition in section 54 of the Act is replaced by the following:
(j) any amount that would otherwise be proceeds of disposition of a share to the extent that the amount is deemed by subsection 84(2) or (3) to be a dividend received except to the extent the dividend is deemed
(i) by paragraph 55(2)‍(b) to be proceeds of disposition of the share, or
(ii) by subparagraph 88(2)‍(b)‍(ii) not to be a dividend, or
(2) Subsection (1) applies to dividends received after April 20, 2015.
5(1) Subsection 55(2) of the Act is replaced by the following:
Deemed proceeds or gain
(2) If this subsection applies to a taxable dividend received by a dividend recipient, notwithstanding any other provision of this Act, the amount of the dividend (other than the portion of it, if any, subject to tax under Part IV that is not refunded as a consequence of the payment of a dividend by a corporation where the payment is part of the series referred to in subsection (2.‍1)) is deemed
(a) not to be a dividend received by the dividend recipient;
(b) if the dividend is received on a redemption, acquisition or cancellation of a share, by the corporation that issued the share, to which subsection 84(2) or (3) applies, to be proceeds of disposition of the share that is redeemed, acquired or cancelled except to the extent that the dividend is otherwise included in computing those proceeds; and
(c) if paragraph (b) does not apply to the dividend, to be a gain of the dividend recipient, for the year in which the dividend was received, from the disposition of a capital property.
Application of subsection (2)
(2.‍1) Subsection (2) applies to a taxable dividend received by a corporation resident in Canada (in subsections (2) to (2.‍2) and (2.‍4) referred to as the dividend recipient) as part of a transaction or event or a series of transactions or events if
(a) the dividend recipient is entitled to a deduction in respect of the dividend under subsection 112(1) or (2) or 138(6);
(b) it is the case that
(i) one of the purposes of the payment or receipt of the dividend (or, in the case of a dividend under subsection 84(3), one of the results of which) is to effect a significant reduction in the portion of the capital gain that, but for the dividend, would have been realized on a disposition at fair market value of any share of capital stock immediately before the dividend, or
(ii) the dividend (other than a dividend that is received on a redemption, acquisition or cancellation of a share, by the corporation that issued the share, to which subsection 84(2) or (3) applies) is received on a share that is held as capital property by the dividend recipient and one of the purposes of the payment or receipt of the dividend is to effect
(A) a significant reduction in the fair market value of any share, or
(B) a significant increase in the cost of property, such that the amount that is the total of the cost amounts of all properties of the dividend recipient immediately after the dividend is significantly greater than the amount that is the total of the cost amounts of all properties of the dividend recipient immediately before the dividend; and
(c) the amount of the dividend exceeds the amount of the income earned or realized by any corporation — after 1971 and before the safe-income determination time for the transaction, event or series — that could reasonably be considered to contribute to the capital gain that could be realized on a disposition at fair market value, immediately before the dividend, of the share on which the dividend is received.
Special rule — amount of the stock dividend
(2.‍2) For the purpose of applying subsections (2), (2.‍1), (2.‍3) and (2.‍4), the amount of a stock dividend and the dividend recipient’s entitlement to a deduction under subsection 112(1) or (2) or 138(6) in respect of the amount of that dividend are to be determined as if paragraph (b) of the definition amount in subsection 248(1) read as follows:
(b) in the case of a stock dividend paid by a corporation, the greater of
(i) the amount by which the paid-up capital of the corporation that paid the dividend is increased by reason of the payment of the dividend, and
(ii) the fair market value of the share or shares issued as a stock dividend at the time of payment,
Stock dividends and safe income
(2.‍3) If this subsection applies in respect of a stock dividend
(a) the amount of the stock dividend is deemed for the purpose of subsection (2) to be a separate taxable dividend to the extent of the portion of the amount that does not exceed the amount of the income earned or realized by any corporation — after 1971 and before the safe-income determination time for the transaction, event or series — that could reasonably be considered to contribute to the capital gain that could be realized on a disposition at fair market value, immediately before the dividend, of the share on which the dividend is received; and
(b) the amount of the separate taxable dividend referred to in paragraph (a) is deemed to reduce the amount of the income earned or realized by any corporation — after 1971 and before the safe-income determination time for the transaction, event or series — that could reasonably be considered to contribute to the capital gain that could be realized on a disposition at fair market value, immediately before the dividend, of the share on which the dividend is received.
Application of subsection (2.‍3)
(2.‍4) Subsection (2.‍3) applies in respect of a stock dividend if
(a) a dividend recipient holds a share upon which it receives the stock dividend;
(b) the fair market value of the share or shares issued as a stock dividend exceeds the amount by which the paid-up capital of the corporation that paid the stock dividend is increased because of the dividend; and
(c) subsection (2) would apply to the dividend if subsection (2.‍1) were read without reference to its paragraph (c).
Determination of reduction in fair market value
(2.‍5) For the purpose of applying clause (2.‍1)‍(b)‍(ii)‍(A), whether a dividend causes a significant reduction in the fair market value of any share is to be determined as if the fair market value of the share, immediately before the dividend, was increased by an amount equal to the amount, if any, by which the fair market value of the dividend received on the share exceeds the fair market value of the share.
(2) The portion of paragraph 55(3)‍(a) of the Act before subparagraph (i) is replaced by the following:
(a) in the case of a dividend that is received on a redemption, acquisition or cancellation of a share, by the corporation that issued the share, to which subsection 84(2) or (3) applies, if, as part of a transaction or event or a series of transactions or events as a part of which the dividend is received, there was not at any particular time

(i) a portion of the dividend is deemed to be a separate taxable dividend equal to the lesser of
(A) the taxable part, and
(B) the amount of the income earned or realized by any corporation — after 1971 and before the safe-income determination time for the transaction, event or series — that could reasonably be considered to contribute to the capital gain that could be realized on a disposition at fair market value, immediately before the dividend, of the share on which the dividend is received, and
