When do I need a trustee?
Under the Income Tax Act, the majority of employee plan types require a trustee. A trust is used to hold shares or other assets for the benefit of employees, under the separate legal ownership of an independent trustee, until the assets become vested. The trustee is the legal owner of the trust assets until such time as they are distributed to beneficiaries. Computershare acts as trustee for a number of plan types, and can also act as trustee for bonds and debentures, and broker RRSPs.
