here's one for the experts:
is it possible to hold stock or mutual fund units listed on a foreign exchange (in a country with no tax treaty with Canada) inside an RRSP?
so say i hold 100 shares of company FBN (Fly-by-night) listed on ASX (Absurdistan stock exchange).
can I create a corporation and hold these shares under that corp. and become a partner in that corp. and hold units of this corp. inside my rrsp?
can I register an SBILP to do this?

any other legal way of doing this?

There is no withholding tax on US equities held within the RRSP or TFSA.

You should discuss the incorporation of a business with your accountant.

A corporation can hold investments.

A RRSP is registered to yourself.

If your company becomes listed on the TMX for example, then, yes you could hold that within your RRSP.
