I am a Canadian citizen living in Halifax.
My brother wants to help me buy a flat and plans to transfer money as a gift ($150,000 USD) from the States to Canada.
Is the transfer taxable?

It is taxable to your brother (assuming he's a US tax resident). Transfer of any amount over $14k per year to any single person (other than spouse) triggers gift tax liability.
