Your Investment Account with FlexiFonds and taxes
Non-registered products such as your Investment Account with FlexiFonds are not subject to the same tax treatment as a TFSA or RRSP account.
You can receive distributions, such as interest, capital gains, or dividends. These distributions are taxed according to the year they are disbursed.
Redeeming FlexiFonds units may incur a capital gain or loss. Typically, half of your capital gain or loss becomes taxable or deductible, depending on the circumstances.
70% of FlexiFonds mutual fund assets are related to the local economy
Investing with FlexiFonds is a great way to keep your savings local.

By participating in the Transfer Fee Refund Promotional Offer (the "Offer"), and subject to applicable laws and the current prospectus, you (the "Client") acknowledge that you have read, understand, and agree to be bound by the following terms and conditions.
In accordance with the terms of the offer, an amount equivalent to the transfer fees incurred, up to a maximum of $150, will be reimbursed to any client who transfers and invests all or part of a registered investment account such as an RRSP, TFSA, or RRIF with a minimum value of $5,000 (the "Eligible Account") from another financial institution to FlexiFonds de solidarité FTQ inc. ("FlexiFonds").
This Offer is valid for all existing or new FlexiFonds Clients who have an active account with FlexiFonds. To be eligible for this refund, the Client must submit a transfer request from an Eligible Account between 8:00 a.m. ET on March 21, 2022, and 11:59 p.m. ET on July 31, 2022 (the "Eligibility Period").
The reimbursement of transfer fees shall be equal to the lesser of: (i) the actual transfer fee for an Eligible Account; or (ii) a maximum amount of $150 per Eligible Account, whichever is less. There is no limit to the number of Eligible Accounts a Client can transfer during the Eligibility Period. Partial transfers from the same Eligible Account are eligible for a single reimbursement only.
All transfer fee refunds shall be made by issuing an equivalent amount of FlexiFonds shares, directly credited to a FlexiFonds account in accordance with the same investment instructions applicable to the proceeds of the Eligible Account being transferred. Any request to redeem or switch FlexiFonds units received within 90 days of the end of the transfer process shall result in the Offer being rendered null and void, and the Client will be required to repay all transfer fees refunded by FlexiFonds.
Transfer fees will be refunded in Canadian dollars after the transfer process is complete. The refunded amount shall not count as an RRSP, TFSA, or RRIF contribution, and no tax receipt will be issued. FlexiFonds mutual fund investments are not eligible for the Labour-sponsored funds tax credit. Transfer fee refunds may have tax implications. For more information, we recommend that the Client consult with their advisor.
Under this Offer, only the transfer fees shall be refunded. No refunds will be made for transferring an Eligible Account that is exempt from transfer fees. The Client is responsible for all redemption fees, liquidation fees, commissions, and any other fees associated with transferring the account.
Transfer requests that do not meet the eligibility requirements stated in the prospectus shall be denied. Fonds de solidarité FTQ and FlexiFonds reserve the right to suspend, cancel, or modify the terms and conditions of the offer at any time and without prior notice, and reject all liability for any loss, damage, or other harm that may result from taking part in the offer and transferring an Eligible Account.
