Investment regulation - Canada


Holding restrictions

There is a foreign ownership restriction on a limited number of industries. When foreign investors purchase shares, they must declare their nationality and complete a declaration form. Restrictions on foreign ownership may vary as they are governed by rules outlined in a separate act. These regulations usually limit ownership to 10% for a single investor (foreign or domestic) and 25% for foreign ownership.
