I am an owner manager and own a CCPC situated in Ontario in Canada. I wish to transfer shares to other family members. Can I just issue the shares outright?

No. You need to properly structure the authorized share capital of the CCPC and issue the shares in a manner not to confer benefits to you. Basically, you are looking at an estate freeze to accomplish your objective. You also need to consider a shareholders agreement and modifications to your Will. Ensure you have dual Wills to eliminate probate on your CCPC shares.
