The Bay Wind Field Inc. has been a CEDIF since 2002 when it achieved its first offering, to date (February 2017), Bay Wind Field has had 11 (eleven) successful offerings always meeting its minimum requirement. The benefit of investing in a CEDIF is that you receive in addition to your investment Equity Tax Credits (ETC's) at set period during the life of your investment. The last offering closed on 29th May 2015. At the present time no more offerings are being considered.

The ETC's are paid as follows:

    Sunrise
  • 1st Tax year of investment 35% [thirty-five percent] of the investment.


  • 5th plus year of investment 20% [twenty percent] of the initial investment, if CEDIF meets certain conditions.


  • 10th plus year of investment 10% [ten percent] of the initial investment, if CEDIF meets certain conditions.


  • If the investment is placed in a RRSP the ETC does not affect the RRSP Tax incentives.
Wind Farm & powerNotes:
  • The Nova Scotia Government have the right not issue the ETC if the CEDIF conditions have not been made.


  • Recently the Nova Scotia Government has extended the ETC to February 2022.

Nova Scotia Flag

    History Of Equity Tax Credit's [ETC's]

In 1993, the Province established the Nova Scotia Equity Tax Credit to encourage local residents to invest in Nova Scotia small businesses. As an incentive, the Province offered a personal tax credit of 30 per cent to encourage investors to participate. The Equity Tax Credit allows equity investment in corporations, co-operatives and community economic development initiatives. In the case of corporations, eligible investments must be newly-issued common voting shares without par value.
