Fellow Canadians waving hello from over here in the Red Sea. Logistical concerns? Don't know how long you plan to be away for but health insurance
and pension concerns are two that come to mind. Will you be keeping a permanent address in Cananda?
We have our mail forwarded by a friend. While we are very grateful for the help, we have had varying luck with this plan. Mail does not always arrive in time and even with the internet
there are things that you need to get done on paper. Manny lost
his driver's license
because it wasn't renewed in time. We will have to deal with that on our next visit "home". It is my understanding that today you renew your license online
in many provinces.
I would also advise talking to someone in your bank - Have a contact that you can email
or skype if you need to. We have found that to be invaluable.
Otherwise, have someone keep photo
copies of all your important documents - passports, birth certificates, boat registration
, etc. If anything gets stolen or lost
those copies will be important.
