As the world’s economies continue to globalize and integrate, more and more wealthy families are recognizing that citizenship is more than just a nationality inherited at birth. In fact, citizenship and residency are powerful, strategic assets that can be acquired or given up in order to create a better life for themselves and their families. This program will highlight the important questions that families should consider in residency and citizenship planning and provide a framework for thinking about these issues. In particular, speakers will explain why Canada has become an attractive destination for wealthy families, particularly from a global tax minimization and ease of immigration perspective. While this program will be of value to all wealth owning families, it will hold particular value for international families who are already evaluating multiple citizenship options and advantages.
