“Bitcoin Rush” is all over the news as speculators have tried to get in on the trend which saw skyrocketing values at the end of 2017. But there is a spoiler: gains on trading digital currencies like Bitcoins are subject to taxation in Canada, a liability that must be settled in real dollars.

I held 200 shares of Kraft Foods in my non-registered investment account. Kraft split into Kraft Foods and Mondelez International. I now have 66 shares of Kraft and 200 of Mondelez. I noticed that my T5 slip is indicated that I received a foreign dividend of over $3,000. Is this a taxable dividend? I didn't receive any cash and the value of the two shares together were more or less the same. Please advise as this is a nasty shock.
