When we move, we will have at least $150,000 in cash savings and nother $200,000 in stock and bond investments.
The question is for both a six month visit in the near term and a settlement visa for 3 to 5 years from now.
My wife wants to re-establish here residence to the UK for the 3 to 5 year time frame.
I would like to remain a resident of Canada for at least another 3 years and preferably 5 years in order to maximize my access to Canadian pension plans.
For my wife, we have not calculated the optimum timing for her pensions. She should be eligible for some Canadian pensions after 10 to 15 years, but it may not make much difference to what she is entitled to in the UK.
Her son and daughter live in the UK and the intent is to move closer to them in the future.
