Retroactive registration to Jan. 1 of application year, and maintenance until end of year following loss of status

1.27 A share or unit of a corporation or trust that is a registered investment (RI) (as defined in subsection 204.4(1)) is a qualified investment. If a registered plan acquires such shares or units before the corporation or trust becomes an RI, the shares or units can still qualify retroactive to the time of acquisition if the corporation or trust is registered as an RI before the end of the calendar year in which the shares or units are acquired. Note that the registration of an RI cannot have retroactive effect any earlier than the beginning of the calendar year in which application for registration is made. Also, if a corporation or trust loses its status as an RI, its shares or units will maintain their qualified investment status until the end of the calendar year immediately following the year in which the deregistration occurred.
