Upcoming Seminar:

Tax Planning Through Limited Partnerships & Spousal Loans

Date: Wednesday, January 23rd, 2019
Time: 6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Location: 1525 Carling Ave, Lower Boardroom


Year after year we need to ask the question of whether or not we can pay less in taxes than the previous year. We here at Mandeville have a number of proven and effective ways to assist clients in driving down their tax bill and have chosen to present two ways in which clients can benefit. As many clients may recognize, every year we utilize Flow Through Limited Partnerships in order to help reduce taxes paid and reduce potential Old Age Security (OAS) claw back.


How do these investments do this you might ask? The Canadian government realizes the high risk associated with junior resource companies. They therefore provide a tax incentive when investing in resource related companies. This incentive works similarly to an RRSP contribution, in that it provides a tax deduction with some additional advantages which we will illustrate.


The second topic will focus on Spousal Loans and demonstrating how couples can pay less tax as a whole rather than as individuals when one spouse is a higher earner relative to the other. Whether you currently utilize either of these strategies or simply would like to learn more, this seminar is sure to be an incredibly valuable opportunity for many clients.


We are grateful to be joined by Peter Christiansen, President & Director of Probity Capital Corporation. Mr. Christiansen has over 22 years of experience in the financial services industry, offering expertise in mutual funds, labour sponsored funds, hedge funds, and flow-through partnerships.

Prior to that position, Mr. Christiansen was the Executive Vice President, National Sales for Middlefield Group where he led a sales team that raised money for mining focused flow-through limited partnerships.


We will also be joined by Michael Prittie, Portfolio Manager and Branch Manager of Capital Wealth Architects. Michael will take the time this evening to discuss Spousal Loans which is a strategy he has used for a number of clients over his 30+ years of experience as a Financial Advisor.
