Accredited Investor Exemption - The criteria for qualification as an "accredited investor" is defined in National Instrument 45-106 of the Canadian Securities Administrators and is set out in the Subscription Instructions of the Investment Application.
Unsure if you are an Accredited Investor? You may qualify as an accredited investor in Canada if you meet at least ONE of the criteria below:
- Your net income before taxes exceeded $200,000 in both of the last two years and you expect to maintain at least the same level of income this year; OR
- Your net income before taxes, combined with that of a spouse, exceeded $300,000 in both of the last two years and you expect to maintain at least the same level of income this year;
- You alone or together with a spouse, own financial assets worth more than $1 million before taxes but net of related liabilites.
Cash, or certain investments such as public equity or bonds, would be considered liquid/financial assets.
- You, who alone or together with a spouse, have net assets of at least $5,000,000;
This criteria requires that an individual have net assets that count for at least $5 million, with liabilities subtracted. This means that an investor with $4.5 million in real estate and $500,000 in cash may be considered an accredited investor.
- You currently are, or once was, a registered advisor or dealer, other than a limited market dealer.
