In Canada can you defer capital gains tax by re-investing the capital gain back into more real-estate like they are able to do in the States?

Would like to know if 1031 is in Canada now. Heard they adopted it in this past term.

1031 Exchange in Canada
by: Christopher Tan


I came across a site explaining Section 1031 in Canada. Is this new? How would we be able to verify if it's legit?

1031 Exchange
by: William L Exeter

The 1031 Exchange does allow you to defer the payment of taxes in the U.S., but there is nothing that I'm aware of in Canada. You can review for more information on 1031 Exchanges.

Hi Aaron,

Thanks for your questions! You're right, in the U.S. they have something called a 1031 Exchange that allows this I believe.

In Canada we don't have such an instrument! So there's no way to do it that we're aware of at the moment unfortunately!

In Canada....if you make pay tax. There's way to offset or reduce it that a good accountant could help with.
