(3) Where there is more than one published market for a unit and only one such published market is within Canada, the closing price of that unit shall be determined solely by reference to the published market in Canada.

(4) Where there is more than one published market for a unit and

(a) more than one such published market is in Canada, or
(b) no such published market is in Canada,

(14) Where an applicant has no knowledge or reason to believe that the beneficial Canadian ownership of units of a class of forward equity of the applicant that are issuable would be less than the applicant’s Canadian ownership rate, calculated without regard to those units, and the applicant elects that the class of forward equity be exempt from the application of this section, the class of forward equity is exempt from the application of this section.

(15) Where units of a class of forward equity were either issued and outstanding or to be issued and outstanding pursuant to a public announcement on or prior to July 15, 1983, the applicant may elect that

(b) the Canadian ownership rate of the owner of the units shall be deemed to be the Canadian ownership rate that would be considered for the purposes of subsection 17(5) and (7) of the Canadian Ownership and Control Determination Regulations to be the Canadian ownership rate of a person deemed to own those units.

(16) Where a class of forward equity of an applicant has been issued by the applicant and

(a) the exercise of the right conferred by a unit of the class of forward equity is subject to a restriction to the effect that the right is not exercisable if the exercise thereof would reduce the Canadian ownership rate of the applicant below a specified limit that is acceptable to the Minister, or
(b) the right conferred by a unit of the class of forward equity cannot be exercised unless, at the time of the exercise of the right, the owner thereof has a specified Canadian ownership rate that is acceptable to the Minister,

Calculation of the Beneficial Canadian Ownership of a Class of Formal Equity

24 [Revoked, SOR/85-847, s. 9]

25 The beneficial Canadian ownership of a class of formal equity is the proportion

[B + (0.5 × U2) + M + S] / (T - U1)
expressed as a percentage rounded to the nearest tenth of a percentage point, where

a) B is the sum of

(i) the products obtained when the number of units owned by each owner of units in a measured block, other than market-maker shares or units described in subparagraph (ii), is multiplied by the Canadian ownership rate of the owner, and
(ii) the products obtained when the number of shares, if any, referred to in subsection 21(1) is multiplied by the Canadian ownership rate required of a purchaser of those shares referred to in that subsection;

b) S is the aggregate number of units that do not form part of a measured block and that are shown on the revised unit holders list as registered in the name of a person with an address in Canada or that are referred to in an entry included on the revised unit holders list pursuant to paragraph 4(1)(d);
c) M is the number of units that are market-maker shares;
d) U2 is the number of units deemed pursuant to subsection 26(2) to be owned by an investor who has a Canadian ownership rate of 50%;

e) T is the sum of

(i) the total number of units in the class of formal equity shown on the unit holders list,

(ii) the greater of

(A) the aggregate number of units

(I) certified by each recorded owner as owned by a person or held for a person, or
(II) certified by any other person as owned by a person or held for a person where any of the units so certified are contained in an entry included in the revised unit holders list pursuant to paragraph 4(1)(c), (d) or (e),

less
(III) the aggregate number of units, other than units included in the revised unit holders list pursuant to paragraph 4(1)(b), registered in any name of a recorded owner referred to in subclause (I), and

(B) nil units, and

(iii) the greater of

(A) nil units, and
(B) the aggregate of the numbers of units referred to in paragraph (a) less the number of units in all measured blocks; and

f) U1 is the lesser of

(i) the total number of units in the street share pool as defined in subsection 26(1), and
(ii) 5% of the number of units of the class of formal equity shown on the unit holders list of the applicant or investor.

SOR/85-847, s. 10.

26 (1) For the purposes of section 25 and subsection (2), street share pool means the aggregate of

(a) the greater of

(i) the aggregate number of units

(A) certified by each recorded owner with an address of record in Canada as owned by a person or held for a person, or
(B) certified by any other person as owned by a person or held for a person and contained in an entry included on the revised unit holders list pursuant to paragraph 4(1)(c), (d) or (e)

subtracted from
(C) the aggregate number of units, other than units included in the revised unit holders list pursuant to paragraph 4(1)(b), registered in any name of a recorded owner referred to in clause (A), and

(ii) nil units; and

(b) the greater of

(i) the aggregate number of units in all measured blocks less the aggregate of the numbers of units referred to in paragraph 25(a), and
(ii) nil units.

(2) For the purposes of calculating the beneficial Canadian ownership of a class of formal equity, a number of units equal to the lesser of

(a) the greater of

(i) nil units, and
(ii) the total number of units in the street share pool less five per cent of the number of units of the class of formal equity shown on the records of the applicant or investor, and

(b) a number of units equal to

(i) in respect of an application filed in 1984, 6%,
(ii) in respect of an application filed in 1985, 3%, and
(iii) in respect of an application filed in any year following 1985, 0%

of the number of units of the class of formal equity shown on the unit holders list of the applicant or investor,

shall be deemed to be owned by an investor having a Canadian ownership rate of 50%.

27 For the purposes of section 4 and notwithstanding subsection 2(2.1), where an entity does not combine into one entry in its revised unit holders list two or more entries therein that relate to units of a class of formal equity that, if combined, would be equal to or greater than the measured block threshold for that class of formal equity and that are registered in the unit holders list in substantially the same manner, the units to which the two or more entries relate shall be deemed to constitute a measured block and to be owned by a person having a Canadian ownership rate of nil, unless the entity demonstrates that the reason the entries were not combined was other than to avoid inclusion of the units to which the entries relate in a measured block.
SOR/85-847, s. 11.

Increases to Canadian Ownership Rate

28 (1) Subject to subsection (3), the Canadian ownership rate of an applicant shall be the sum of the Canadian ownership rate that would be determined in accordance with section 16 if the words “rounded to the nearest whole number”, read “rounded to the nearest tenth of a percentage point” and a percentage calculated as follows:

(a) where the applicant is a public entity and its Canadian ownership rate, calculated in accordance with section 16, is at least 50%, 5%;

(b) where the applicant is an entity other than a public entity, a percentage equal to the sum of the products obtained by multiplying
(i) the aggregate of the direct equity percentages and the indirect equity percentages of each investor that is a public entity and that for the purposes of the application has calculated a Canadian ownership rate of not less than 50%,
by

(ii) the lesser of

(A) five, and
(B) 100 less the number of percentage points represented by the Canadian ownership rate referred to in subparagraph (i)

rounded to the nearest whole number.

(1.1) Subsection (1) applies only where

(a) the applicant has made an application for a certificate prior to the coming into force of this subsection; and
(b) the applicant’s Canadian ownership rate determined with regard to subsection (1) would not, in the application of sections 7 to 9 of the Petroleum Incentives Program Act for any relevant year, fall within the same appropriate range of Canadian ownership rate, as prescribed for that year by section 10 of that Act, as the applicant’s Canadian ownership rate calculated without regard to subsection (1).

(2) For the purposes of subparagraph (1)(b)(i)

(a) the direct equity percentage or indirect equity percentage of a public entity in respect of any person that is a factor in determining any indirect equity percentage that is included in the calculation referred to in that subparagraph shall be deemed to be nil; and
(b) the direct equity percentage of any person in any other person shall be determined without reference to any class of formal equity the beneficial Canadian ownership of which was not included in the calculation of Canadian ownership rate pursuant to section 16.

(3) Subsection (1) applies only where each investor that has elected to be treated as having a Canadian ownership rate of 100% pursuant to section 15 has a direct equity percentage or an indirect equity percentage in the applicant that is less than 5%.
(4) Notwithstanding anything in these Regulations, the Canadian ownership rate of a person shall not exceed 100%.

SOR/85-847, s. 12.

29 An investor having a Canadian ownership rate of 90% or more determined in accordance with this Part, but without regard to section 28, shall be considered to have a Canadian ownership rate of 100% in respect of an applicant if the investor’s direct equity percentage and indirect equity percentage in respect of the applicant are

(a) where the investor has determined its Canadian ownership rate pursuant to section 16 as an applicant or as an investor equity-related to an applicant, less than 50%; or
(b) in any other case, less than 10%.

SOR/85-847, s. 13.

(a) each of the following shall be a class of formal equity of the trust, consisting of 100 units:

(i) all interests in possession of beneficiaries whose interests can be expressed in terms of a right to a certain amount or percentage of all or any part of the income of the trust,
(ii) all interests in expectancy of beneficiaries whose interests can be expressed in terms of a right to a certain amount or percentage of all or any part of the income of the trust,
(iii) all interests in possession of beneficiaries whose interests can be expressed in terms of a right to a certain amount or percentage of all or any part of the capital of the trust,
(iv) all interests in expectancy of beneficiaries whose interests can be expressed in terms of a right to a certain amount or percentage of all or any part of the capital of the trust,
(v) all discretionary interests of beneficiaries with respect to all or any part of the income of the trust, and

(a.1) where a trust demonstrates to the Minister that the beneficial Canadian ownership of a class of formal equity of the trust does not accurately represent the beneficiaries’ interests in the capital or income of the trust, or any part thereof, the Minister may adjust the beneficial Canadian ownership accordingly;

(b) subject to paragraph (c), each beneficiary of the trust shall be deemed to own a number of units of a particular class referred to in paragraph (a) determined in accordance with the formula

(Av/Tv) × 100,
calculated to two decimal places where

(i) Av is the value of the interest of the beneficiary represented in that class, and
(ii) Tv is the value of all beneficial interests constituting that class;
c) subject to paragraph (d), the beneficial Canadian ownership of a class of formal equity that comprises discretionary interests in a trust shall be equal to the lowest Canadian ownership rate of any of the beneficiaries whose discretionary interests constitute that class determined as if the words “rounded to the nearest whole number” in section 16 read “rounded to the nearest 10th of a percentage point” and, for greater certainty, subject to paragraph (f), if such beneficiaries include a person that has or may have a Canadian ownership rate of nil, whether or not the identity of that person can be ascertained, the beneficial Canadian ownership of the class shall be deemed to be nil;
d) the Canadian ownership rate of a trust shall be determined without regard to the existence of any discretionary power to consume, advance, appropriate, encroach upon or otherwise dispose of all or part of the capital or income of a trust to or for the benefit of any one or more individuals who have interests in that capital or income independently of the existence of the discretionary power, if the exercise of that power is limited by a determinable standard relating to the health, education, maintenance, support or comfort of such individual or individuals;
e) any possibility that one or more persons will subsequently acquire interests in property of the trust at birth, on adoption or on marriage shall be disregarded;

f) for the purposes of paragraph (b), the value of any income right, annuity, term of years, life interest or other similar estate and of any interest in expectancy shall be determined,

(ii) where the income right, annuity, term of years, life interest or other similar estate or the interest in expectancy depends on a life contingency, on the basis of compound interest at the designated rate of interest with annual rests and the standard of mortality set out in Table I of Schedule II;

g) Tables II, III and IV of Schedule II shall be used as far as they may be applicable for the purpose of determining the value of any income right, annuity, term of years, life interest or other similar estate or interest in expectancy;
h) for the purposes of paragraphs (f) and (g), the annual income from any property shall be deemed to be the product of the designated rate of interest and the value of the property;
i) for the purposes of paragraph (b), where the value of any interest in a trust depends on the happening of a contingency other than a life contingency, the value of the interest shall be determined on the basis that the contingency will not occur, except that, if the Minister is satisfied that the contingency is substantially within the control of a person who is not dealing at arm’s length with a beneficiary of the trust, the value of the interest shall, if the Minister so directs, be determined as if the contingency had already occurred;
j) for the purposes of paragraph (b), where the value of any interest in the trust depends on the happening of a contingency that the Minister is satisfied cannot reasonably be expected to occur, the value of the interest shall be determined on the basis that the contingency will not occur;
k) for the purposes of paragraph (b), where the value of a particular interest in a trust depends on the death of a beneficiary before attaining such age, not exceeding 40 years, as is specified in the trust instrument, and the particular interest of the beneficiary is an interest in possession, the value of that particular interest and the value of any other interest determined with reference to the value of that particular interest shall be determined as if that beneficiary will attain the age specified in the trust instrument; and
l) where each of the beneficiaries in whose favour a discretionary power may be exercised has a Canadian ownership rate of 100%, the Canadian ownership rate of the trust may, if the trust so elects, be determined without regard to the existence of that discretionary power.

SOR/85-847, s. 16.

Beneficial Canadian Ownership of Classes of Formal Equity of a Trust

49 (1) If the beneficial Canadian ownership of a class of formal equity of an applicant or of an investor that controls the applicant in any manner that results in control in fact, whether directly through the ownership of units or indirectly through a trust, contract, the ownership of units of any other entity, or otherwise, or that is a member of a group that so controls the applicant cannot be determined for the purpose of paragraph 48(b) without reference to the designated rate of interest, the beneficial Canadian ownership of that class shall be the lowest Canadian ownership rate of any of the beneficiaries whose interests constitute that class determined as if the words “rounded to the nearest whole number” in section 16 read “rounded to the nearest 10th of a percentage point”.
(2) Subsection (1) does not apply to a trust that is an investor that would not have a direct or an indirect equity percentage in the applicant if all publicly traded classes of formal equity were disregarded in the measurement of direct or indirect equity percentage.

50 Where a trust certifies that each of the beneficiaries that has an interest in a trust is a person that has a Canadian ownership rate of 100%, the trust shall be considered to have a Canadian ownership rate of 100%.

Transitional Provisions

(b) any individual related to any one or more of the beneficiaries referred to in paragraph (a), or
(c) a person obliged to make use of its interest in income or capital exclusively for charitable purposes,

the trust may elect, in determining its Canadian ownership rate, that the existence of the discretionary power shall be disregarded in determining the Canadian ownership rate.

(2) Notwithstanding any other provision of these Regulations, where a trust created before March 10, 1982 is an applicant or investor and the Minister is satisfied that, in the circumstances and when considering the terms and conditions of the trust, the main purpose of the trust is to provide for the benefit of any one or more individuals related to any individual from whose contributions of property to the trust made prior to March 10, 1982 more than 25% of the value of the capital of the trust shall be determined as if all interests of the beneficiaries in the trust constituted one class of formal equity of the trust consisting of 100 units and as if all the units of that class of formal equity were owned by the beneficiaries, other than any beneficiary excluded by the Minister for the purposes of this subsection equally or in such unequal shares as the Minister considers appropriate having regard to previous distributions, if any, made under the trust.
(3) For the purposes of this section, where the terms of a trust have been amended or varied after March 9, 1982, regardless of whether such amendment or variation has been effected by virtue of a court order, an exercise of a power of amendment or variation conferred or reserved in the terms of the trust, an agreement of the beneficiaries or otherwise, the trust shall be deemed to have been created after March 9, 1982.
(4) Subsection (3) does not apply to a trust that was created before March 10, 1982 and that was amended or varied after March 9, 1982 or was resettled after March 9, 1982 where the sole effect of such amendment, variation or resettlement was to require, either expressly or otherwise, that any beneficiary or member of a class of beneficiaries have a Canadian ownership rate of 100%.
