If you are a UK citizen then you won't have any border issues. If not, then after a couple of such long term visits you are likely to be asked questions at the border.
You won't be eligible for the NHS as you are a visitor, so will need private health insurance.

If you're planning on splitting your time close to 50:50, you should check where it is cheaper to be resident/ tax resident, and split your time to your best advantage.

There are numerous possible differences, including cost of healthcare, availability of travel insurance, which is going to get exponentially higher as you get older, where you want to eventually settle when you get too old to (want to) travel back and forth, where your family are settled, and whether inflation increases on your UK state pension are important to you.

Tax residency in Canada can be determined by time spent in country, but also by significant dies, even when not ordinarily physically in country.

My cousin Eddie has a step ladder and some bunting left over from the coronation. He's in Luton, so PM me if you're interested and I'll hook you up.

Didn't Kate Middleton's (now Princess of Wales) parents have a party planning/events/decorations company? Certainly a swish way to go.

The OP hasn’t been back to the forum since posting anyway. If they do, and they read the responses given and respond, it’ll soon be back on track.
