If you are a citizen of one of the countries listed below, we will continue your U.S. Social Security payments as long as you are eligible, no matter how long you stay outside the United States:

• Austria • Belgium • Canada • Chile • Czech Republic • Finland • France • Germany • Greece • Ireland • Israel • Italy • Japan • Korea (South) • Luxembourg • Netherlands • Norway • Poland • Portugal • Spain • Sweden • Switzerland • United Kingdom

So as you can see, as long as you are entitled to the payments, because of the treaty we have with Canada, you are still entitled to those payments - and they will send them to you there as well
