How to buy Bitcoin & Ethereum in Canada? Taxes to pay?

#1
Hello, fellows! I'm so new to Bitcoin. Recently I've discovered the phenomenon of Bitcoin and started to dig deeper. Found out about Vitalik Buterin and his promising project Ethereum.
Can anyone explain to me how to buy BTC and ETH in Canada? I want to invest a little of my funds in these cryptocurrencies but I simply don't know where to start. Thanks!

Greetings, Quot!

Here is what I've found:
Tax rules apply to digital currency transactions, including those made with cryptocurrencies. Using digital currency does not exempt consumers from Canadian tax obligations.
This means digital currencies are subject to the Income Tax Act.

I assume that when you convert cryptocurrency back into CAD, this should be taken as income and needs to be declared as such.

You can buy BTC or ETH in any cryptocurrency exchange. These ones should work well with a Canadian ID: You can also buy Bitcoin & Ethereum on https://localbitcoins.net/ - the p2p cryptocurrency marketplace.

Another option is to use BTC ATM. Choose one on the map: https://coinatmradar.com/country/38/bitcoin-atm-canada/

Canadian Crypto exchanges and localbitcoins are both very good options to buy Bitcoin and Ethereum.

Bitcoin ATMs are good for individuals who want to stay anonymous and it provides the opportunity for people to buy higher volumes of BTC, ETH, or LTC, almost instantly. In Ontario, our company has over 62 ATMs with call support 7 days a week. You can find a location near you here: www.localcoinatm.com

We also have 2-way ATMs that allow users to sell Bitcoins back to us for cash. It's a very easy process and much more convenient to cash out than some of the other methods.

Flexepins are also a good option where users can go to their nearest convenience store and load up vouchers to redeem for bitcoins.
