Examples of common transfers

Farm or fishing property

When you transfer farm or fishing property, you may have a capital gain. If you transfer farm or fishing property to a child, or to a spouse or common-law partner or to a spousal or common-law partner trust, you may be able to postpone any taxable capital gain or recapture of capital cost allowance.
