Segregated funds may be considered a qualified investment according to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) as it pertains to a Registered Disability Savings Plan and other registered plans. It may be helpful to review CRA publication Income Tax Folio S3-F10-C1, Qualified Investments – RRSPs, RESPs, RRIFs, RDSPs and TFSAs which sets out the common types of qualified investments and tax consequences for non-qualified investments.
If you have further questions we suggest you contact the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) who regulate registered products. It may be helpful to speak with a registered financial representative or tax professional for advice.
