W9 form is ONLY for US citizens or US residents.If that Canadian trust is a pass through entity and the settlor is either US citizen or US resident - then use form W9.If however the settlor is a non resident alien OR the Canadian trust is NOT a pass through entity - then use W8 form.

Tax Professional: Lev, Tax Advisor replied 1 year ago
The issue is that form W9 or W8 is signed by a Beneficial Owner.If that is a single member LLC - that is Disregarded Entity. A business entity that has a single owner and is not a corporation under Treasury Regulations section(###) ###-####2(b) is disregarded as an entity separate from its owner.In simple words - Disregarded - means - ignored - and the owner of the LLC is considered as a Beneficial Owner.For payments other than those for which a reduced rate of withholding is claimed under an income tax treaty, the beneficial owner of income is, generally, the person who is required under U.S. tax principles to include the income in gross income on a tax return..I appreciate if you take a moment to rate the answer.Experts are ONLY credited when answers are rated positively.If you still have any doubts, need clarification - please be sure to ask.I am here to help you with all tax related issues.
