US Citizens Retiring to Canada?

Jump to last reply

Has anyone done this? Or know anyone? How does it work?

We live in Pittsburgh so you don't have to tell me about the winters! AND if they get that bad we have family and friends down south from NC to FL. Plus there is a good chance I will inherit a beach house by then a St Simon's.

We enjoy the Niagara On the Falls and up to Toronto area but haven't been past Toronto.

As long as we are close enough to the modern conveniences and entertainment/shopping-that would be great....plus easy access back down to the Buffalo area as needed.

Drove up to Burlington on Saturday on the QEW and noticed LOTS of nice homes being built along the lake side of the highway. PRICES that were advertised were very good!

Are there special rules for non Canadian's purchasing property?
Access to health care a problem?
Who do you pay taxes too???
