Mandate

Among its various responsibilities, the Board certifies cultural property for income tax purposes. In this role, it makes determinations with respect to the "outstanding significance and national importance" and the fair market value of objects or collections donated or sold to designated Canadian museums, art galleries, archives and libraries. The Review Board also reviews appeals of applications for export permits that have been denied. If it determines that the property for which an export permit has been denied is of "outstanding significance and national importance", it establishes a delay period of between two and six months during which the property must remain in Canada. During this period, designated institutions and public authorities are notified of the availability of the property and may request a Movable Cultural Property Grant to assist with the purchase of cultural property in order to keep it in Canada.
