    Has any Canadian ever purchased a gift stock from Oneshare.com? Are we allowed too? Do we get taxed?

    Yes, many years ago, I think I bought mine in 2001. No tax I am aware of as the dividends are so small. You will received dividends checks, financial report and proxy voting opportunity every year as well. At the time I bought mine the stock price was 17.00 wow. I remember I did have to contact them a few times until I received it but I do have it. My brother bought one as the same time, he did not keep in contact with them and it never did show up. Might have been just a bad employee in the shipping department back then. They have been selling Disney shares for a long time. Mine looks good in my office.

    I bought one a few years ago and am very happy. I don't even cash the dividend cheques because they are less than a dollar - LOL.

    Someone purchased me some as a gift and I get all the proxy stuff etc. and some info to fill out for taxes, but I called and in reality the shares are not worth much and I will probably never sell them etc. so no need to fill out all that paperwork.

    I purchased 1 stock for my DW about 10 years ago. They are nice as a decorative piece on your wall but not much else. Just to give you an idea, the dividend cheque you get is usually between 18 and 23 cents:lmao:
