    • The software application determines the premium for each coverage and refund of premiums rider.
premium payment
Premium Payment

tax impact
Tax Impact
  • There would only be a taxable advantage if the corporation also assumes the premium for the Flexible Return of Premiums benefit.
  • The benefits payable to the corporation cannot be payable to the key person through the CDA.
documents required
Documents Required
  • F1A, F1AP (life insurance application)
  • Q4A (critical illness medical questionnaire)
  • Designation of Beneficiaries – Shared Ownership Insurance (extranet)
    • Shared ownership agreement (corporation & shareholder)
    • Excerpt of the composition of the board of directors
    • Company seal (if available)

Not required by the corporation

important note
Important Note
  • Make sure that the company is in good financial health and that it has enough cash to pay the premiums, to avoid having the policy lapse after just a few years
  • Even though the company believes in the tax and legal advantages of this strategy, the corporation’s tax, legal and accounting specialists are in the best position to determine if the concept suits their client.
tax impacts
Tax Impacts
  • Currently, critical illness insurance contracts are not governed by any tax law specific to this type of coverage. Right now, the critical illness insurance benefit and the Flexible Return of Premiums benefit are paid tax-free.
  • The Insurance Act does not consider critical illness insurance to be life insurance. The resulting benefits are not subject to the definition of capital dividend account (CDA) established by the Income Tax Act.
  • In Quebec, the Civil Code clearly states that the addition of a return of premiums rider does not modify the foundation of this type of protection. However, it is currently the only provincial legislative text that mentioned it.
