I called Revenue Canada and spoke with three people all of them gave me a different answer on this. I have an Interactive Broker account and converted Canadian Dollars into US Dollars. My mistake is that I did not immediately buy stocks. I would put in a limit bid and sometimes it would be months before I bought something. I can't figure out why my dispositions on my T5008 is so high. When I asked whether I have to report my currency gains I was advised that I have to declare the gains or loss of a currency purchase as follows: 1. I buy some USD then keep it for a time period. 2. The day of the stock purchase I have to record the gain or loss of the currency. 3. Then also declare the gain/loss of the stock purchase when I sell. Is this how others treat currency gain or losses?
