What’s a flow-through share?

A flow-through share is a type of investment issued by Canadian oil and gas or mineral exploration companies. They allow certain expenses paid by the exploration company to be claimed by the shareholders on their individual tax returns.

Selling your flow-through shares might mean that you’re entitled to claim a capital gains deduction. You would use the information and amounts shown on your RL-11 slip to claim this deduction. Click this link for more information.
