Taxation for Canadians who travel or are abroad

Updated: May 5, 2020

Canadians travelling extensively, living or working abroad may still have to pay Canadian and provincial income taxes. This all depends your residency status.

It is important that you know your residency status since it will have an impact on the income tax rules that apply to you while you are outside Canada. An individual’s residency status is determined on a case by case basis, but some of the main factors that determine your status are:

  • Your residential ties in Canada

  • The purpose of your stay

  • Your ties abroad

Your residency status depends on why and how long you are staying outside Canada, the ties you establish in your new country, how long and how often you return to Canada and your residential ties to Canada.
