Share-based incentive compensation plans continue to be in the spotlight, for both companies and the Canada Revenue Agency. Significant changes took effect in 2021 in connection with stock option plans and new pronouncements by the CRA.  This session will summarize these significant changes and the effect they have on existing plans and provide an overview of the advantages and disadvantages of various plans that companies may wish to use to aid in long-term growth and the retention of key employees.
