ATI Physical Therapy stock is now publicly available to purchase. Here's how you can buy in.
ATI Physical Therapy, a company that operates nearly 900 physical therapy clinics, is planning to go public through a merger with a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC), also known as a blank check company. SPACs are companies with no commercial operations that exist purely to raise capital through IPOs. The deal is expected to close in the second quarter.
The SPAC, Fortress Value Acquisition Corp II, originally went public in August 2020 and currently trades on the NYSE under the ticker symbol "FAII."

Before you can invest in ATI Physical Therapy, you'll need to open a brokerage account.
You won't be able to buy ATI Physical Therapy stocks on a Canadian stock exchange like the TSX or CSE. Instead, you'll need a Canadian broker that provides access to stocks sold on international exchanges. However, some Canadian brokerages don't offer access to international investments at all or only provide access to a limited range of investment opportunities.
You can access US exchanges like the NYSE and the NASDAQ using Canadian trading platforms like Questrade, Wealthsimple Trade, Scotia iTRADE and Interactive Brokers. Interactive Brokers also provides access to many stock exchanges outside North America like the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (SEHK), Korea Stock Exchange (KSE), National Stock Exchange of India (NSE), Frankfurt Stock Exchange (FWB) and London Stock Exchange (LSE).
The process of buying stocks listed on international exchanges is basically the same as buying stocks in a Canadian company. You buy and sell using your online trading account or through an investment broker who handles international stocks.
Agreements between Canada and the US require Canadians holding US stock investments to pay the US Internal Revenue Service (IRS) a 15% withholding tax on any dividends earned on their US stocks. Interest earned from bonds or other interest-yielding US investments are similarly taxed at a rate of 10%.
An exception is made for stock investments held in trust exclusively designed to provide retirement income. Such trusts include RRIFs, LIRAs, LIFs, LRIFs and Prescribed RRIFs. RRSPs are also exempt from US withholding tax if you own US investments in the form of US stocks, bonds or ETFs.
All income from investments, including foreign investments, must be declared as part of your income on your Canadian tax return. Unless your US earnings are exempt from withholding tax, this means you'll be double taxed on those earnings — first by the IRS, then by the CRA. However, the CRA may allow you to claim foreign tax credits for any taxes you've already paid to the IRS.
