Reasons Why Canadians Retire To The Dominican Republic
The Dominican Republic government has allowed people to retire to the DR since 2007 seamlessly. Law 171-07 was introduced for foreigners to be able to move to the DR by simply providing proof of stable income. You can begin your retirement application to the DR with minimal and straightforward requirements, no matter your age.
Casa Linda is proud to be one of the most trusted communities in the Dominican Republic that provides our clients with exceptional villas, services and amenities. Read on to learn more about why people, especially Canadians, retire to the DR and choose Casa Linda for their new home.
Dashing Through The Snow!
The only time the phrase “dashing through the snow” is used in fun and exciting atmosphere is when singing the Christmas carol during the holidays. It’s all fun and games until your car stops working the next day from the extreme cold or you’re shovelling 4-5 inches of snow 6 in the morning to dig your car out of the parking lot. With winter lasting more than six months a year and having snow and windstorms in the spring, Canadians have sought out retirement in a country that offers endless sunny days.
With beautiful weather, gorgeous beaches and delicious cuisines, the Dominican Republic offers Canadian retirees the perfect retirement destination in the Caribbean. Over 200 days a year, the DR’s climate is sunny and warm, with average temperatures of 82ºF (28ºC) in July and 76ºF (23ºC) in January. Casa Linda’s development will provide you with comfortable homes and great weather all year round.
Low Living Costs
The cost of food, services and goods in the Dominican Republic is much lower than in the United States or Canada. Even in large cities like Santo Domingo, living costs are significantly lower than in cities back home. Living off your investments, savings or paychecks can be pretty restricting, especially if you’re on a tight budget.
However, in the Dominican Republic, your money can last longer, no matter the monthly budget. Not only are the essential utilities and groceries very affordable, but the villas, restaurants and services are also a fraction of the price in Canada. Retirees choose to live a luxurious, affordable lifestyle in the Dominican Republic comfortably without worrying about expensive expenses.
