    • (a) in the case of any one participating province (in this section referred to as the “selected province”) having the highest tax rate on the first day of the fiscal year, the percentage determined by the formula

      A/B

      where

      A
      is the total of all amounts, each of which is determined for an attribution point in respect of the series for the particular period by the formula

      (A1/A2) + [A3 × (A1/A4)] + [(1 – A3) – (A4/A2)]

      where

      A1
      is the total of all amounts, each of which is the total value of the units of the series held, on the attribution point, by a person that the financial institution knows, on December 31 of the calendar year in which the fiscal year ends, is resident in the selected province on the attribution point,
      A2
      is the total value of the units of the series other than units held, on the attribution point, by a person that the financial institution knows, on December 31 of the calendar year in which the fiscal year ends, is not resident in Canada on the attribution point,

      is the lesser of 0.1 and the amount determined by the formula

  • Marginal note:Attribution of unit holders to a participating province

    (2) For the purposes of subsection (1), if, for any attribution point in respect of a series of an investment plan for a particular period in which a fiscal year of the investment plan ends, the total of all amounts — each of which is the total value of the particular units of the series held on the attribution point by a person in respect of which the investment plan knows, on December 31 of the calendar year in which the fiscal year ends, whether or not the person is resident in Canada on the attribution point and, in the case of persons resident in Canada, the province in which the person is resident on the attribution point — is less than 50% of the total value of the units of the series on the attribution point, the following rules apply:

    • (a) the units of the series, other than the particular units, are deemed to be held on the attribution point by a particular individual and not by any other person;

    • (b) the particular individual is deemed to be resident on the attribution point in Canada and in the selected province referred to in subsection (1) for the series and for the particular period; and

    • (c) the investment plan is deemed to know on December 31 of the calendar year that the particular individual is, on the attribution point, resident in Canada and in the selected province.

  • Marginal note:Plan mergers

    (3) Despite subsection (1), if a plan merger between two or more investment plans (each of which is referred to in this subsection as a “predecessor”) occurs on a particular day to form a particular stratified investment plan that is a selected listed financial institution and a particular series, other than a provincial series, of the particular investment plan is an exchange-traded series, the following rules apply:

    • (a) if no election under section 50 is in effect throughout the fiscal year of the particular investment plan (in this subsection referred to as the “transitional fiscal year”) that includes the particular day, the particular investment plan’s percentage for the particular series, for a participating province and for the particular period (in this subsection referred to as the “preceding period”) that precedes the particular period in which the transitional fiscal year ends is equal to the particular amount that is the total of all amounts, each of which is determined for a particular predecessor by the formula

      A × B/C

      where

      A
      is
      • (i) if the particular predecessor is a stratified investment plan, the total of all amounts, each of which is determined by the following formula for a series of the particular predecessor (in this subparagraph referred to as a “predecessor series”), units of which were converted, by any means, into units of the particular series:

        A1 × A2/A3

        where

        A1
        is
        • (A) if an election under section 49 or 64 is in effect in respect of the predecessor series immediately before the plan merger, the particular predecessor’s percentage for the predecessor series and for the participating province as of the last day on which that percentage is required to be determined for the purposes of subsection 225.2(2) of the Act, as adapted by these Regulations, before the plan merger, and

        • (B) in any other case, the particular predecessor’s percentage for the predecessor series, for the participating province and for the last particular period of the particular predecessor ending before the plan merger,

        A2
        is the total value immediately before the plan merger of the units of the predecessor series that were converted, by any means, into units of the particular series by virtue of the plan merger, and
        A3
        is the total of all amounts, each of which is the total value immediately before the plan merger of the units of a series of the particular predecessor (including the predecessor series) that were converted, by any means, into units of the particular series by virtue of the plan merger,
      • (ii) if the particular predecessor is a non-stratified investment plan in respect of which an election under section 49 or 61 is in effect immediately before the plan merger, the particular predecessor’s percentage for the participating province as of the last day on which that percentage is required to be determined for the purposes of subsection 225.2(2) of the Act, as adapted by these Regulations, before the plan merger, and

      • (iii) in any other case, the particular predecessor’s percentage for the participating province and for the last particular period of the particular predecessor ending before the plan merger,

      B
      is the total value immediately before the plan merger of the units of the particular predecessor that were converted, by any means, into units of the particular series by virtue of the plan merger, and
      C
      is the total of all amounts, each of which is the total value immediately before the plan merger of the units of a predecessor (including the particular predecessor) that were converted, by any means, into units of the particular series by virtue of the plan merger; and
    • (b) if the plan merger occurs on or after September 30 of the calendar year in which the transitional fiscal year begins, the particular investment plan’s percentage for the particular series, for a participating province and for the particular period in which the transitional fiscal year ends is equal to the particular amount referred to in paragraph (a).
