Colleen, there is no gift tax in Canada (AFAIK). They can give you $100k without any tax implications.
It's nice to have parents!We are going to build a cabin this summer and have all the financing in place with the bank. This week my parents said they want to give us money to put towards the costs. Are there tax implications for our parents or us if they give us $50,000 to $100,000? What if they paid some of the bills such as the lumber, siding, furnace and contractor fee?
