Re: Maintaining Canadian residential ties

I don't know why on earth you'd want to keep Canadian residential ties. The only things you get out if it are higher taxes and the option to get medial treatment when you're in the country.

So long as you remain a citizen of the country you'll always have the right to go back and live there whenever you choose, even if you've been living abroad for years. For now, declare that you've left the country, and whenever you go back for good, register with the feds and the provincial government. Easy as pie. When you move back there will be a three-month delay before your health care kicks in (at least this is the case in every province I lived in), but that's the only minor concern. It's easy enough to get private cover for this short period of time.
