i.  an annual interest rate of 3.5%, and
ii.  mortality rates;
(b)  in determining the mortality rates that apply in respect of a life insured under a coverage under the policy,
i.  if a single life is insured under the coverage,
(1)  the age that is to be used is the age of the life insured on the date on which the coverage was issued, or that which is attained on the birthday of the life insured nearest to the date on which the coverage was issued, depending on the method used by the insurer that issued the policy in determining the premium or cost of insurance rates in respect of the life insured,
(2)  if the life insured was determined by the insurer that issued the policy to be a standard life on the date on which the coverage was issued, the Proposed CIA Mortality Tables, 1986–1992 included in the May 17, 1995 Canadian Institute of Actuaries Memorandum, extended to include select mortality rates from age 81 to age 90 developed using the methodology used by the Canadian Institute of Actuaries to derive select mortality rates from age 71 to age 80, applicable for an individual who has the same relevant characteristics as the life insured, are to be used, and
(3)  if the life insured was determined by the insurer that issued the policy to be a substandard life on the date on which the coverage was issued, the mortality rates that are to be applied are equal to the value determined in accordance with the second paragraph,
ii.  if 2 or more lives are jointly insured under the coverage, the mortality rates to be used are those determined by applying the methodology used by the insurer that issued the policy to estimate the mortality rates of the lives jointly insured for the purpose of determining the premium or cost of insurance rates in respect of the coverage to the Proposed CIA Mortality Tables, 1986–1992 included in the May 17, 1995 Canadian Institute of Actuaries Memorandum, extended to include select mortality rates from age 81 to age 90 developed using the methodology used by the Canadian Institute of Actuaries to derive select mortality rates from age 71 to age 80; and
(c)  in determining the net premium reserve of the policy, the present value of future net premiums or cost of insurance charges is to be calculated as if a premium or cost of insurance charge payable or incurred on a policy anniversary were payable or incurred, as the case may be, one day after the policy anniversary.
The value to which subparagraph 3 of subparagraph i of subparagraph b of the first paragraph refers is either of the following values, depending on the method used by the insurer for the purpose of determining the premium or cost of insurance rates in respect of the coverage:
(a)  the lesser of 1 and the product obtained by multiplying the rating attributed to the life by the insurer and the mortality rates that would be determined under subparagraph 2 of subparagraph i of subparagraph b of the first paragraph if the life insured were not a substandard life, or

S.Q. 2019, c. 14, s. 628.
92.11R12.3. Subject to sections 92.11R12.4 to 92.11R12.6, for the purpose of applying subparagraph c of the first paragraph of section 92.11R12.2 in respect of a life insurance policy issued before 1 January 2017 or an annuity contract, a modified net premium and an amount determined in accordance with that subparagraph c are to be computed using the rates described in the second paragraph and taking into account only
(a)  in the case of a lapse-supported policy effected after 31 December 1990, rates of interest, mortality and policy lapse; and
(b)  in any other case, rates of interest and mortality.
The rates to which the first paragraph refers are as follows:
(a)  in the case of a modified net premium and a benefit (other than a benefit described in subparagraph b) of a participating life insurance policy (other than an annuity contract) under the terms of which the policyholder is entitled to receive a specified amount in respect of the policy’s cash surrender value, the rates used by the insurer when the policy was issued in computing the cash surrender values of the policy;
(b)  in the case of a benefit provided in lieu of a cash settlement on the termination or maturity of a policy, or in satisfaction of a dividend on a policy, the rates used by the insurer in computing the amount of such benefit; and
(c)  in the case of the whole or part of any other policy, the rates used by the insurer in computing the amount of the premiums in respect of the policy.
S.Q. 2019, c. 14, s. 628.
92.11R12.4. For the purposes of section 92.11R12.3, where the present value of the premiums in respect of a policy on the date of its issue is less than the aggregate of the present value on that date of the benefits provided for by the policy and outlays and expenses referred to in section 92.11R12.5, an increased rate of interest must be determined by multiplying the rate of interest used by the insurer in computing the amount of such premiums by a constant factor so that, when the increased rate of interest is used, the present value of those premiums on that date is equal to the aggregate of the present value on that date of those benefits, outlays and expenses and, in such case, that increased rate of interest is deemed to have been used by the insurer in computing the amount of such premiums.
S.Q. 2019, c. 14, s. 628.
92.11R12.5. The outlays and expenses referred to in section 92.11R12.4 are those made or incurred by the insurer in respect of the policy or those that it reasonably estimates to make or incur in respect of the policy, except for the maintenance in force of the policy after the payment of all premiums if an express provision in that respect has not been made in calculating the premiums, and such part of any other outlays or expenses incurred by the insurer that is reasonably applicable to the policy.
S.Q. 2019, c. 14, s. 628.
92.11R12.6. For the purposes of section 92.11R12.3, where a rate of mortality or other probability used by an insurer in computing a premium in respect of a policy is not reasonable in the circumstances, the Minister may, on the advice of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions, modify that rate in a manner that is reasonable in the circumstances and the insurer is deemed to have used that modified rate in computing that premium.
Likewise, for the purposes of section 92.11R12.4, a present value referred to in that section must be computed using the rates of mortality and other probabilities used by the insurer in computing its premiums after any modification required under the first paragraph.
S.Q. 2019, c. 14, s. 628.
92.11R12.7. For the purposes of section 92.11R12.3, where no document related to the rate of interest or mortality used by an insurer in computing the amount of the premiums in respect of a policy is available, the insurer may, if the policy was issued before 1978, make a reasonable estimate of that rate and the Minister, on the advice of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions, may do likewise if the policy was issued after 1977 or, where it was issued before 1978, if the insurer has not made such an estimate.
S.Q. 2019, c. 14, s. 628.
92.11R12.8. Despite subparagraph c of the first paragraph of section 92.11R12.2, a life insurer may use a method of approximation in computing its income for a taxation year, in respect of any class of life insurance policies issued before its 1988 taxation year, other than policies referred to in subparagraph a or b of that first paragraph, in order to convert the amount that it reported as a reserve in respect of those policies in its annual report for the year filed with the Superintendent of Financial Institutions into an amount that is a reasonable estimate of the amount that, but for this section, would have been computed under subparagraph c of that first paragraph in respect of those policies, provided that that method of approximation is acceptable to the Minister on the advice of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions.
S.Q. 2019, c. 14, s. 628.
92.11R12.9. For the purposes of section 92.11R12.3 and despite sections 92.11R12.4 to 92.11R12.8 and 92.11R12.10, where an individual annuity contract was issued before 1969 by a life insurer or a benefit was purchased before 1969 under a group annuity contract issued by a life insurer, and the contract is a policy in respect of which section 628.8 of the former Regulation, within the meaning of section 2000R2, applied as that section 628.8 read for the purposes of its application to the insurer’s 1977 taxation year, the insurer must use the same rates of interest and mortality as those used in computing its reserve provided for by such section 628.8 in respect of the policy for its 1977 taxation year.
S.Q. 2019, c. 14, s. 628.
92.11R12.10. For the purposes of section 92.11R12.3 for a taxation year and subject to the fourth paragraph, an insurer may revise the rates of interest, mortality or policy lapse used by the issuer of the policies referred to in subparagraph b to eliminate all or any part of the reserve deficiency determined in subparagraph c, where
(a)  a disposition to which section 832.7 of the Act applies has been made to the insurer during the year by a person with whom it was dealing at arm’s length;
(b)  the insurer assumes, as a result of the disposition referred to in subparagraph a, obligations under life insurance policies in respect of which it may claim an amount as a reserve for the year under subparagraph c of the first paragraph of section 92.11R12.2;
(c)  the reserve deficiency determined by the following formula is a positive amount:

A − B − C; and

(d)  the reserve deficiency determined in subparagraph c may reasonably be attributed to the fact that the rates of interest, mortality and policy lapse used by the issuer of the policies referred to in subparagraph b to determine the cash surrender value of the policies or the premiums in respect of those policies are no longer reasonable in the circumstances.
In the formula in subparagraph c of the first paragraph,
(a)  A is the aggregate of all amounts received or receivable by the insurer from the person referred to in subparagraph a of the first paragraph in respect of the policies referred to in subparagraph b of the first paragraph;
(b)  B is the aggregate of all amounts paid or payable by the insurer to the person referred to in subparagraph a of the first paragraph in respect of commissions in respect of the amounts referred to in subparagraph a; and
(c)  C is the aggregate of the maximum amounts that may be claimed by the insurer for the year as a reserve under subparagraph c of the first paragraph of section 92.11R12.2, determined without reference to this section, in respect of the policies referred to in subparagraph b of the first paragraph.
The rates revised under the first paragraph are deemed to have been used by the issuer of the policies referred to in subparagraph b of the first paragraph for the purpose of determining the cash surrender value of the policies or the premiums in respect of those policies.
If in accordance with this section an insurer has revised the rates of interest, mortality or policy lapse used by the issuer of the policies referred to in subparagraph b of the first paragraph, the Minister may, for the purposes of section 92.11R12.3 and the third paragraph, make further revisions to the revised rates to the extent that the insurer’s revisions to those rates are not reasonable in the circumstances.

ii.  if the policy is issued after 31 December 2016, the condition in subparagraph a will be met on the policy’s next policy anniversary, without reference to any automatic adjustments under the policy that may be made after the particular time to ensure that the policy is an exempt policy and, where applicable, making projections using the most recent values that are used to calculate the accumulating fund in respect of the policy or in respect of each exemption test policy issued in respect of a coverage under the policy;
(c)  the condition in paragraph a was met on all policy anniversaries of the policy prior to the particular time; and
(d)  the condition in paragraph b was met at all times from the first policy anniversary of the policy and before the particular time.

i.  on the date of issue of the life insurance policy, and

(b)  B is the amount by which 8% of the amount of the death benefit under the life insurance policy on the policy anniversary preceding the policy anniversary referred to in subparagraph iii of subparagraph b of the first paragraph (or, if there is no preceding policy anniversary, the date of issue of the policy) exceeds the aggregate of all amounts each of which is, in respect of a coverage under the policy, the lesser of
i.  the amount by which the amount of the death benefit under the coverage on the date of the policy anniversary referred to in that subparagraph iii exceeds the amount of the death benefit under the coverage on the later of the coverage’s date of issue and the date of the life insurance policy’s preceding policy anniversary (or, if there is no preceding policy anniversary, the coverage’s date of issue), and
ii.  8% of the amount of the death benefit under the coverage on the later of the coverage’s date of issue and the date of the policy anniversary preceding the policy anniversary referred to in that subparagraph iii (or, if there is no preceding policy anniversary, the coverage’s date of issue).

(a)  to have a death benefit that is uniform throughout the term of the exemption test policy and that, subject to section 92.19R5, is equal to
i.  if the date on which the exemption test policy is issued is determined under subparagraph i of subparagraph a of the first paragraph of section 92.19R3, the amount by which the amount on that policy anniversary of the death benefit under the life insurance policy exceeds the aggregate of all amounts each of which is the amount on that policy anniversary of the death benefit under another exemption test policy issued on or before that policy anniversary in respect of the life insurance policy,
ii.  if the date on which the exemption test policy is issued is determined under subparagraph ii of subparagraph a of the first paragraph of section 92.19R3, the amount of the excess referred to in that subparagraph on that date in respect of the life insurance policy,

(2)  the amount determined under subparagraph 1 of subparagraph i of subparagraph b of the second paragraph in respect of the coverage on that date; and
(b)  to pay the amount of its death benefit on the earlier of the exemption test policy’s endowment date and

ii.  if the life insurance policy is issued after 31 December 2016,
(1)  if 2 or more lives are jointly insured under the coverage, the date at which the benefit would be payable as a result of the death of any of the lives, and
(2)  in any other case, the date of death of the individual whose life is insured under the coverage.
In the formula in subparagraph iii of subparagraph a of the first paragraph,
(a)  A is the amount, on the policy anniversary referred to in the first paragraph, of the death benefit under the coverage;
(b)  B is
i.  if the death benefit under the life insurance policy includes a fund value benefit on the policy anniversary referred to in the first paragraph, the portion of the fund value benefit on that policy anniversary that is equal to the lesser of
(1)  the maximum amount of the fund value benefit that could be payable on that policy anniversary if no other coverage were offered under the life insurance policy and the life insurance policy were an exempt policy, and
(2)  the amount by which the fund value benefit on that policy anniversary exceeds the aggregate of all amounts each of which is the portion of the fund value benefit allocated to other coverages under the life insurance policy, and
ii.  in any other case, nil; and
(c)  C is the aggregate of all amounts each of which is the amount, on the policy anniversary referred to in the first paragraph, of the death benefit under another exemption test policy issued on or before that policy anniversary in respect of the coverage.

i.  the portion of the particular amount that did not reduce the death benefit under one or more other such exemption test policies, and
ii.  the amount, immediately before that time, of the death benefit under the relevant exemption test policy; and

104R3. Where a vessel owned by a taxpayer on 1 January 1966, or constructed pursuant to a construction contract entered into by the taxpayer prior to that date without the vessel being completed by such date, is disposed of by the taxpayer prior to 1974, section 94 of the Act and Title IV of Book III of Part I of the Act does not apply to the proceeds of disposition
(a)  if an amount at least equal to the proceeds of disposition is used by the taxpayer, before the month of May 1974 and during the taxation year in which the taxpayer disposed of the vessel or within 4 months following the end of that taxation year, under the conditions provided for in subparagraph i of paragraph a of subsection 15 of section 13 of the Income Tax Act (R.S.C. 1985, c. 1 (5th Suppl.)), either for replacement of the vessel or to incur any conversion cost with respect to another vessel owned by the taxpayer; or

104R4. In the case of a disposition referred to in section 104R3, the taxpayer may, within the time prescribed under the Act for the filing of the taxpayer’s fiscal return for the taxation year in which the taxpayer disposed of the vessel, elect to have the vessel considered as a prescribed class or, if any conversion cost in respect of the vessel has been included in a separate prescribed class, have the vessel transferred to that class and, if the taxpayer so elects, the vessel is deemed to have been so transferred immediately before the disposition by the taxpayer.
However, this section does not apply unless the proceeds of disposition of the vessel exceed the amount that would be the undepreciated capital cost of property of the class to which the vessel would be so transferred.

104R5. If section 104R3 does not apply to the proceeds of disposition of a vessel or if the taxpayer does not make an election under section 104R4 within the time prescribed therein, the taxpayer may, on disposal of a vessel owned by the taxpayer, elect to have the proceeds that would be included in computing the taxpayer’s income for the year under Part I of the Act, treated as proceeds of disposition of property of another prescribed class that includes a vessel owned by the taxpayer.

(a)  that was constructed in Canada;
(b)  that is registered in Canada or in any place to which the British Commonwealth Merchant Shipping Agreement signed at London on 10 December 1931 applies; and
(c)  in respect of the capital cost of which no allowance has been made to any other taxpayer under this Act, the Provincial Income Tax Act, or the Corporation Tax Act.
Similarly, such amount may be paid out to or on behalf of any person who incurs any conversion cost with respect to a vessel the person owns and that is described in subparagraph b of the first paragraph.
However, the ratio of the amount paid out to the amount of the deposit may not exceed the ratio of the capital cost of the vessel or the conversion cost of the vessel, as the case may be, to the proceeds of disposition of the vessel disposed of and any deposit or part of a deposit not so paid out before the month of July 1975 or not paid out pursuant to section 104R8 is assigned to the Consolidated Revenue Fund.

INDEXED DEBT OBLIGATIONS
c. III.0.1; O.C. 1454-99, s. 10; O.C. 134-2009, s. 1.
125.0.1R1. In this chapter,
“excluded payment” with respect to a taxpayer for a taxation year means, subject to the second paragraph, an indexed payment under an indexed debt obligation where
(a)  the non-indexed debt obligation associated with the indexed debt obligation provides for the payment, at least annually, of interest at a single fixed rate; and
(b)  the indexed payment corresponds to one of the interest payments referred to in paragraph a;
“indexed payment” means, in relation to an indexed debt obligation, an amount payable under the obligation that is determined by reference to the purchasing power of money;
“inflation adjustment period” of an indexed debt obligation means, in relation to a taxpayer,
(a)  where the taxpayer acquires and disposes of the taxpayer’s interest in the obligation in the same regular adjustment period of the obligation, the period that begins when the taxpayer acquires the interest in the obligation and ends when the taxpayer disposes of the interest; and
(b)  in any other case, each of the following consecutive periods:
i.  the period that begins when the taxpayer acquires the taxpayer’s interest in the obligation and ends at the end of the regular adjustment period of the obligation in which the taxpayer acquires the interest in the obligation,
ii.  each succeeding regular adjustment period of the obligation throughout which the taxpayer holds the interest in the obligation, and
iii.  where the taxpayer does not dispose of the interest in the obligation at the end of a regular adjustment period of the obligation, the period that begins immediately after the last period referred to in subparagraph i or ii and that ends when the taxpayer disposes of the interest in the obligation;
“regular adjustment period” of an indexed debt obligation means
(a)  where the terms or conditions of the obligation provide that, while the obligation is outstanding, indexed payments are to be made at regular intervals not exceeding 12 months in length, each of the following periods:
i.  the period that begins when the obligation is issued and ends when the first indexed payment is required to be made, and
ii.  each succeeding period beginning when an indexed payment is required to be made and ending when the next indexed payment is required to be made;
(b)  where paragraph a does not apply and the obligation is outstanding for less than 12 months, the period that begins when the obligation is issued and ends when the obligation ceases to be outstanding; and
(c)  in any other case, each of the following periods:
i.  the 12-month period that begins when the obligation is issued,
ii.  each succeeding 12-month period throughout which the obligation is outstanding, and
iii.  where the obligation ceases to be outstanding at a time other than the end of a 12-month period referred to in subparagraph i or ii, the period that commences immediately after the last period referred to in those subparagraphs and that ends when the obligation ceases to be outstanding.
For the purposes of the definition of “excluded payment” in the first paragraph, an excluded payment does not include payments under an indexed debt obligation where, at any time in the taxation year, the taxpayer’s proportionate interest in a payment to be made under the obligation after that time differs from the taxpayer’s proportionate interest in any other payment to be made under the obligation after that time.
s. 125.0.1R1; O.C. 1454-99, s. 10; O.C. 134-2009, s. 1.
125.0.1R2. For the purposes of this chapter, the non-indexed debt obligation associated with an indexed debt obligation is the debt obligation that would result if the indexed debt obligation were amended to eliminate all adjustments determined by reference to changes in the purchasing power of money.
s. 125.0.1R2; O.C. 1454-99, s. 10; O.C. 134-2009, s. 1.
125.0.1R3. For the purposes of paragraph a of section 125.0.1 of the Act, where, at any time in a taxation year of a taxpayer, the taxpayer holds an interest in an indexed debt obligation, the amount determined in accordance with the second paragraph is deemed to be interest received or receivable by the taxpayer in the year in respect of the obligation.
The amount to which the first paragraph refers is equal to the aggregate of
(a)  the amount determined by the formula
A – B;
(b)  where the non-indexed debt obligation associated with the indexed debt obligation is an obligation that is described in any of subparagraphs a to d of the first paragraph of section 92.5R3, the amount of interest that would be determined in accordance with section 92.5R4 to accrue to the taxpayer in respect of the non-indexed debt obligation in the particular period described in the fifth paragraph if, for the purposes of that section 92.5R4, the particular period were a taxation year of the taxpayer and the taxpayer’s interest in the indexed debt obligation were an interest in the non-indexed debt obligation.
In the formula in subparagraph a of the second paragraph,
(a)  A is the aggregate of all amounts each of which is the amount by which the amount payable in respect of the taxpayer’s interest in an indexed payment under the indexed debt obligation, other than a payment that is an excluded payment with respect to the taxpayer for the year, has, because of a change in the purchasing power of money, increased over an inflation adjustment period of the indexed debt obligation that ends in the year, exceeds
(b)  B is the aggregate of
i.  the aggregate of all amounts each of which is that portion of the aggregate determined in accordance with subparagraph a that is required, otherwise than because of section 125.0.1 of the Act, to be included in computing the taxpayer’s income for the year or a preceding taxation year;
ii.  the aggregate of all amounts each of which is the amount by which the amount payable in respect of the taxpayer’s interest in an indexed payment under the indexed debt obligation, other than a payment that is an excluded payment with respect to the taxpayer for the year, has, because of a change in the purchasing power of money, decreased over an inflation adjustment period of the obligation that ends in the year.
For the purpose of determining the amount by which an indexed payment under an indexed debt obligation has increased or decreased over a period because of a change in the purchasing power of money, the amount of the indexed payment is determined using the method for computing the amount of the payment at the time it is to be made, adjusted in a reasonable manner to take into account the earlier date of computation.
The particular period to which subparagraph b of the second paragraph refers is the period that begins at the beginning of the first inflation adjustment period of the indexed debt obligation in respect of the taxpayer that ends in the year, and ends at the end of the last inflation adjustment period of the indexed debt obligation in respect of the taxpayer that ends in the year.

130R71. In this division,
“exempt property” means
(a)  a property whose capital cost to the taxpayer does not exceed $1,000,000 and that is general-purpose office furniture or office equipment included in Class 8 in Schedule B, including mobile office equipment such as cellular telephones and pagers, or general-purpose electronic data processing equipment and ancillary data processing equipment described in subparagraph g of the first paragraph of Class 10 in that schedule;

(f)  a trailer designed to haul freight and to be hauled, under normal operating conditions, by a truck or tractor referred to in subparagraph e;

(h)  vessel mooring space; and
(i)  a property that is included in Class 35 in Schedule B;
“specified leasing property” of a taxpayer at any time means tangible depreciable property other than exempt property, that is
(a)  used at that time by the taxpayer or a person with whom the taxpayer does not deal at arm’s length primarily for the purpose of gaining or producing gross revenue that is rent or leasing revenue;
(b)  the subject of a lease at that time to a person with whom the taxpayer deals at arm’s length, the expected term of which at the time it was entered into was more than 1 year; and
(c)  the subject of a lease where the fair market value of the tangible property that is the subject of the lease, other than the exempt property, exceeded $25,000 at the time the lease was entered into.
For the purposes of the definition of “specified leasing property” in the first paragraph and for greater precision, specified leasing property does not include systems software or property described in subparagraph q or r of the second paragraph of Class 10 in Schedule B or in any of subparagraphs n, o and r of the first paragraph of Class 12 in that schedule.
The lessee referred to in paragraph g of the definition of “exempt property” in the first paragraph is a person exempt from tax under Book VIII of Part I of the Act or a person who uses the building in the course of carrying on a business the income from which is, by reason of a provision of the Act, exempt from tax under Part I of the Act, or a Canadian government, a municipality or any other Canadian public authority.

130R72. For the purposes of paragraph c of the definition of “specified leasing property” in the first paragraph of section 130R71, where it may reasonably be concluded, in view of the circumstances, that one of the main reasons for the existence of 2 or more leases is to avoid the application of section 130R76 by reason of each such lease being a lease where the fair market value of the tangible property that is the subject of the lease, other than exempt property, did not exceed $25,000 at the time the lease was entered into, each such lease is deemed to be a lease of tangible property that had, at the time the lease was entered into, a fair market value exceeding $25,000.
s. 130R42.2; O.C. 366-94, s. 7; O.C. 1466-98, s. 126; O.C. 134-2009, s. 1.
130R73. For the purposes of the definition of “specified leasing property” in the first paragraph of section 130R71 and despite section 130R72, where a taxpayer referred to in section 130R92 so elects in the taxpayer’s fiscal return required be filed under Part I of the Act for a taxation year in respect of the year and subsequent taxation years, the property of the taxpayer that is the subject of leases entered into during those years is deemed not to be exempt property for those years and the fair market value of the tangible property that is the subject of each such lease is deemed to exceed $25,000 at the time the lease is entered into.
s. 130R42.3; O.C. 366-94, s. 7; O.C. 134-2009, s. 1.
130R74. Subject to section 130R79 and for the purposes of the definition of “specified leasing property” in the first paragraph of section 130R71, a taxpayer who at any time acquires from a person with whom the taxpayer deals at arm’s length a property that is the subject of a lease with a remaining term at that time of more than 1 year is deemed to have entered into, at that time, a lease with an expected term of more than 1 year.
s. 130R42.4; O.C. 366-94, s. 7; O.C. 134-2009, s. 1.
130R75. For the purposes of paragraph a of the definition of “exempt property” in the first paragraph of section 130R71, where a property is owned by 2 or more persons or partnerships or a combination of persons or partnerships, the capital cost of the property to each such person or partnership is deemed to be equal to the aggregate of the amounts each of which represents the capital cost of the property to each of those persons or partnerships.
s. 130R42.5; O.C. 366-94, s. 7; O.C. 1707-97, s. 98; O.C. 1466-98, s. 126; O.C. 134-2009, s. 1.
130R75.1. Despite the definition of “exempt property” in the first paragraph of section 130R71, exempt property does not include property that is the subject of a lease if that property had, at the time the lease was entered into, a fair market value in excess of $1,000,000 and the lessee of the property is
(a)  a person who is exempt from tax by reason of Book VIII of Part I of the Act;
(b)  a person who uses the property in the course of carrying on a business, the income from which is exempt from tax under Part I of the Act by reason of any provision of the Act;
(c)  a Canadian government; or
(d)  a person not resident in Canada, except if the person uses the property primarily in the course of carrying on a business in Canada that is not a treaty-protected business.
For the purposes of the first paragraph, if it is reasonable, having regard to all the circumstances, to conclude that one of the main reasons for the existence of two or more leases was to avoid the application of the first paragraph by reason of each such lease being a lease of property where the property that was the subject of the lease had a fair market value, at the time the lease was entered into, not in excess of $1,000,000, each such lease is deemed to be a lease of property that had, at the time the lease was entered into, a fair market value in excess of $1,000,000.
O.C. 1105-2014, s. 4.
130R76. Despite Chapter I and Divisions I, II, IV to XIV and XVIII, the amount deductible by a taxpayer for a taxation year in respect of a property that is a specified leasing property at the end of the year is equal to the lesser of
(a)  the amount by which the aggregate of the following amounts exceeds the aggregate of the amounts deducted by the taxpayer in respect of the property by reason of this section before the beginning of the year and after the time, referred to in this section as the “particular time”, when the property last became a specified leasing property of the taxpayer:
i.  the amounts that would be considered to be repayments during the year or a preceding taxation year as principal on a loan made by the taxpayer if
(1)  the taxpayer had made the loan at the particular time and the principal amount of the loan were equal to the fair market value of the property at that time,
(2)  interest, capitalized semi-annually and not in advance, had been charged on the principal amount of the loan outstanding from time to time at the rate, determined pursuant to section 125.1R2, in effect at the earlier of the particular time and any time prior to the particular time at which the taxpayer last entered into an agreement to lease the property or, where a particular lease provides that the amount paid or payable by the lessee of the property for the use of or right to use the property varies according to the rates of interest in effect from time to time, at the beginning of the period for which the interest is computed if the taxpayer so elects, in respect of all property that is the subject of the particular lease, in the taxpayer’s fiscal return filed under Part I of the Act for the taxation year during which the particular lease was entered into, and
(3)  the amounts received or receivable by the taxpayer
