Default 55 years on May 15/2021

We left the UK on May 15th 1966 and have been here as residents/citizens of Canada for 55 years now. Both retired now we have a very good life and can’t imagine living anywhere else. We both, despite limited education, had good well paid jobs meaning now we have sufficient funds from our pensions to live the life we want and enjoy. Good Luck and Best Wishes to ALL

Congratulations!

We arrived in Canada 53 years ago in August, and like you are happy we made the move and the decision to stay. Plus, like you, we have the pension funds to enjoy life without worrying about money .......... so long as we don't go mad and start buying a $2 million cottage on a lake .

I'm not sure what our pension status would have been like in the UK
