Considering a gift of securities?
This may be the year to do it.

As Canadians, we have enjoyed increased tax benefits when gifting publicly traded securities to charitable organizations, but beginning in January 2024 due to changes in the Federal Budget, a percentage of any capital gain on these donated securities will now be taxable and the donation tax credit could be cut in half.
