Re: PR card renewal but stuck in UK

With respect and I know it might appear unusual but I pay taxes in both Canada and the UK, every year. I have to accept your bluntness as you are not aware of my personal situation that has created...

Re: PR card renewal but stuck in UK

Thank you all for your replies. I guess the human condition doesn't come into all of this then? If I lose residency, I will be forced to sell up. No longer will NS benefit from my local and national...

Re: PR card renewal but stuck in UK

Yes, I agree. I have, however, just been told this morning that I am scheduled for more surgery over here and that will delay me still further. I could write a whole book on the difficulties I have...

Re: PR card renewal but stuck in UK

I am now on my second PR card. Generally, I spend half my year in Canada and half my year in the UK and I pay tax in both countries, as I am resident in both countries, having a house in the UK and a...

PR card renewal but stuck in UK

Hello all. A short thread title is not enough for me to explain, so here goes. I am a PR but maintain a house in the UK (this has been because of complex family issues, which I will not bore you...

Re: No regrets

I agree, a great post. Often rose-tinted spectacles play an enormous part in the decision to move over here. I would add, if you're thinking of moving to one of the poorer provinces, say Nova...

Re: Nova Scotia Car Insurance companies

Here I am in Bear River, Nova Scotia. For my first year, my insurance was with Fairway who dealt with Aviva. I went for collision only and it was $530. The renewal price for this year was to be...

Re: Just starting out

Yes, I would agree with this. Canada has problems like any other country, including the UK and I know that some would regard Canada as a joke as you do the UK.

Re: Cost of living in Canada?

Hello Mikeypm. My thoughts on cost of living. I have been here in Nova Scotia for just over a year. One thing you can't stop yourself doing is comparing prices with the UK. If the exchange rate...

Re: Non-resident for tax purposes

Yes, the healthcare I agree with but you could quite easily have a house and driver's licence over here and not be a resident or a resident for tax purposes. You can only drive on a UK licence for...

Re: Non-resident for tax purposes

An interesting reply from JonboyE. I am in a similar position and will be enforced to leave Canada in November but have every intention of retaining my house here and hopefully, retaining residency....

Re: Driving in UK on visit

Steve, I'm aware of that but don't you see the problem I am raising here. If I spend say 7 months in the UK, you could argue that, that is my principal residence. However, I might also wish to...

Re: What Brought You to Canada?

I came here because I love it out here and I could. There is so much space, less crowded, delightful people and Frenchays!

Re: Driving in UK on visit

None of the previous posts have covered a situation that I will find myself in. In November of this year, I will return to the UK and will probably stay there until June and return to Nova Scotia...

Thoughts after one year in Nova Scotia.

Hello all. Yes, a year today (May 5th) here in Nova Scotia. My brief observations. It is a lovely province with still a lot more for me to explore. I love having the space around where I live.

Re: UK license

I think one valid reason for holding two licences would be if you share your time between the UK and Canada. For example, if you spend 5 months in Canada, you are required to hold a Canadian...

Re: 2007 queue - where are we up to?

Coffepot! I was so sad to read this news and I do think it terribly unfair the way you have been treated. I understand your frustration.

I suppose the only crumb of consolation would be to say...

Re: Why do Canadians not use ebay?

A report was published just the other day relating to Internet trading in Canada. As a country, they rank I think it was 8th in the world and the guy on CTV said that is likely to drop to 12th. The...

Re: Nova Scotian drivers licence/UK licence and insurance

Yes, I was thinking about this but surely it wouldn't look favourable to insurance companies? I do actually retain my address in the UK and pay my Council Tax for that address. Legitimately, I...
