 Embrace the Future with Employee Ownership Trusts (EOTs)

Transform Your Business with New Canadian Legislation

Canada is pioneering the future of business transitions with the introduction of Employee Ownership Trust (EOT) legislation. This innovative framework empowers business owners to seamlessly transition ownership to their employees, fostering a sustainable and engaged workforce.

What is an Employee Ownership Trust (EOT)?

An EOT is a trust established to hold shares on behalf of a company’s employees, ensuring they benefit from the company’s success. This model not only secures the legacy of your business but also enhances employee motivation and retention.

Why Choose an EOT?

– Legacy Preservation: Keep your business thriving within a trusted and loyal team.
– Employee Empowerment: Boost morale and productivity by giving employees a stake in the company.
– Smooth Transition:*Benefit from a structured, well-regulated process designed to ease ownership transfer.
– Financial Incentives:Business owners could qualify for up to $10 million in Lifetime Capital Gains if the transition occurs before 2026.
