Be sure to check the rules regarding residency for tax purposes; health care; OAS; motor vehicle & drivers licensing; auto insurance. Generally speaking you want to maintain CDN residency for just over 6 months for most purposes (health care, taxes). OAS is payable outside the country, provided you have been a long=term resident. Immigrants need to check the rules on number of years residency to make sure their eligibility is not affected. Out of country health care insurance gets increasingly expensive with age; auto insurance rates & policies are based on geographic location, so if you are spending 6 months out of your normal area of residence your insurance coverage may be affected.

You might want to consider joining an association like the Canadian Snowbird Association to keep in touch with news and articles on these issues.
