Jade, Thats a good question. It does get cold. I was there last week and it was -20. But I really like the city and the lifestyle. Lots of restaurants and cafes etc. I think Dec Jan are bad and one couldget out. The summers are fantastic. I plan to live in an apartment so I dont have to shovel snow.

Nope. It's "Mississauga."
Like Mississippi, but instead of "ippi" at the end it's "auga."

Confused
Now that the U.S. dollar has de-valued against the Canadian dollar it'd be pretty easy in some fields to earn an equivalent of $87,000 U.S., which is now like $85-86k Cdn.

Yes that's extra taxation.

Oops, not neccessarily extra taxation, but two tax forms need to be filled out, so extra headaches.
I heard that both governments allow "credits" when you have two countries to pay income tax to.

If you think you can entirely escape the clutches of the IRS by becoming a citizen of another country, not so. Should you live in Canada (for example), become a Canadian citizen, renounce your US nationality and then win the lottery, Uncle Sam would try to get tax out of you for ten years after you were naturalized.

And another example of unfairness. if you collect Social Security and a work-based pension from another country (such as Canada Pension Plan), from ahving worked in both countries, your Social Security benefits are reduced, even though you have made the same contributions as the next guy.

In other words, to avoid double taxation I need to keep my income below 85k a year? Now that my boyfriend is a Canadian citizen, I guess I need not worry about us being over the income limit as long as I keep my income below 85K US dollars. I've lived many years in New York so I don't believe that the weather would be much of an issue even though I've lived in Florida for the last 8 years; however, I believe if I do decide to marry him, the hassle of moving all my belongings to Canada may be an issue.. Would I be taxed on items that I bought here if I am moving them to Canada? Are there fees to pay for bringing those items across the border? Keep in mind that I will be using a moving truck...if I decide to go.
