A Canadian controlled private corporation or CCPC[1] is an incorporated small business which may qualify for lower tax rates on active business income[2]. In order to qualify as a CCPC it must not be controlled, directly or indirectly in any manner whatever, by public corporations, non-residents or a combination of the two.

A CCPC provides access to the small business deduction.[3]

There is a tax benefit, as part of the lifetime capital gains exemption (LCGE)[4], that may be available to the shareholders when the shares of a qualified CCPC are sold.
