Does anyone know of tax attorney who specializes in cryptocurrency in Canada?

Does anyone know if exchange of Bitcoin for altcoin (i.e. buy 10 ETH at 0.8 BTC/ETH from poloniex) is considered as capital gain in Canada?  I know it is in the states, but cannot find any reference for Canada.

If anyone can provide accurate information with references, I am willing to tip 0.005 BTC..

According to this website :

Bitcoin counts as foreign property and "under the foreign property reporting rules in section 233.3 of the Income Tax Act." unless you have more than $100,000 CDN worth Bitcoin, you shouldn't pay any tax.

Unless you convert it to fiat or have more than $100,000 CDN you should be fine.

Just calculate for income tax. Claim what you made into their fiat.
