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.
