There are exceptions, like flipping a house that is considered your primary residence, but if you’re doing it with multiple locations at one time, then your capital gains may be 100 percent taxable. Income earned in a self-employed capacity (including Uber, Airbnb, Etsy professionals) won’t go on your T4 but rather needs to be reported on Form T2125 Statement of Business or Professional Activities.
