According to the CRA tax guide, you're not taxed when you buy crypto with fiat, like Canadian Dollars. This said, even though you don't pay tax, it's still really important you keep good records of your crypto transactions so you can keep a detailed account of your cost basis. This lets you calculate accurate crypto gains and losses when you later dispose of your crypto assets. But note that according to the above-mentioned tax guide, buying crypto with another crypto is subject to Capital Gains Tax. The CRA views this as a disposition, meaning you're getting rid of one asset. It doesn't matter that you're using it to buy another.
According to the CRA tax guideline, since cryptocurrency is viewed as a capital asset, when you dispose of it by selling it, swapping it, spending it or gifting it, you'll owe Capital Gains Tax on any profit you make. Crypto transactions which are considered a disposition in Canada according to the CRA include: Selling crypto for CAD, swapping crypto for another crypto, spending crypto on goods or services, gifting crypto. According to the mentioned guideline, you won't pay Capital Gains Tax on the entire proceeds when you sell, swap, spend or gift your cryptocurrency, but only the profits from it.
