Maintaining Canadian residential ties

My question is directed at the Canadians reading the forum...anyone out there? I'm curious if you guys who work here in Switzerland have retained your residency ties --> and hence pay Canadian taxes?

I'm going to be here for another 3-4 years at least, and I'm thinking of giving up my residency status (**note**, not citizenship) so that I don't have to pay so much bloody tax. I guess one option is to just not declare my income, but I don't want to get busted for tax fraud later on. Just wondering if anyone knows what are the advantages of retaining the residential ties and how difficult it would be to get back when (if? -- most likely) I move back to Canada.

Thanks in advance!
