Retiring abroad

Thousands of Canadians have decided to live their retirement years in another country, perhaps with a more moderate climate or proximity to family and friends. Many do so year-round, while others, including snowbirds, spend a few months abroad at a time.

Whatever your reason for wanting to retire outside Canada, the basic rule is to make careful preparations. Tax laws, medical care and security quickly become a preoccupation once you live in another country or wish to return home to Canada after an extended stay.

Stay in touch with your family and friends in Canada to let them know that all is well with you.
