Are you ready to Leave Canada?

Introducing ‘Leave Canada’

A guided service that delivers highly personalized planning and execution support for Canadians seeking to expatriate and live a better, lower-tax life abroad.

A note from The Wandering Investor

After graduating from Bishop’s University in Québec, I took a one-way flight out of Canada. I completed my post-grad in international business and law at The University of Sydney in Australia, and then joined Nestlé for an expat career in Switzerland and Africa which led me to the executive board of Nestlé Ghana running operations in a few West African countries.

After 7 years of climbing the corporate ladder, I left and have since then been traveling with my family actively managing my money by doing real estate deals all over the world. Over my lifetime, I’ve traveled to over 100 countries, lived in over a dozen, and conducted business in dozens.

I now have multiple citizenships, residencies, as well as bank accounts and real estate all over the world. Importantly, I am structured in a way that I legally pay very little taxes.

I know many Canadians want to leave Canada for a host of reasons, but it can be confusing. The process can be a bit scary, and there are so many options out there that it is overwhelming at times.

  • Where should I move?
  • What are the tax implications in Canada of leaving the country?
  • What will my tax situation look like in my new country of tax residency?
  • Do I need multiple residencies and citizenships or should I keep things simple?
  • Where should I bank?

These are just some of the questions and why we’ve launched a dedicated consulting service for Canadians to free themselves from the various monkeys (tax, freedoms, weather..) on their back.

From navigating Canada’s exit tax to establishing a global presence with strategic investments. Whether you’re aiming for an early retirement, seeking financial efficiency, or longing for a life in a more fulfilling culture, we can help facilitate your process.

We will help you find the right place(s) for your financial and lifestyle objectives.
