             and business entrepreneurs alike. Over 200,000
             people immigrate to Canada every year.

                   About the 5 year tax holiday
               Canada offers a generous tax holiday to
               attract investors
               Income taxes as well as capital gain taxes on
               non-Canadian source income as well as
               capital gain producing assets can be avoided,
               for 60 months from after arrival in Canada
               Canada also does not have an estate tax,
               making it a very attractive choice for high net
               worth individuals from countries facing high
               estate taxes

                     Importance of tax planning
               It is extremely important that proper tax planning is
               done prior to arrival in Canada.
               Taking the example of a $500,000 portfolio earning
               a 10% return. Over a 5 year period earned income
               of $250,000 can be earned tax free.
               If the above structuring is not done in the right
               manner, the potential tax liability can be as high as
               $125,000.
