Canada - Taxation of employer stock option plans

An announcement in the Canadian Budget proposed changes to the taxation of employer stock option plans.

This is just a proposal at this stage with more information expected in summer. You can find more in our budget coverage along with more analysis regarding the proposals as they are published.
