Hi there. I became permanent resident of Canada in 2017, but officially moved to Canada in 2018 (Oct.). I used a CPA to file my taxes. He did not ask me anything related to T1135 (foreign assets) and hence it was not filed for 2018. I did have foreign income > 100,000. I checked online tax software (simpletax) and the Government of Canada website; seems like new immigrants are exempt from filing the form for the first year they become residents of Canada. My question is that does new immigrant in terms of T1135 mean the year he/she/they officially starts residing in Canada or the year he/she/they became PR. Note that I had no ties to Canada in terms of income, interest, bank account etc in 2017, hence did not file taxes.
