Retirement planning is as much about when to retire as where to retire. The default for most of us is somewhere in Canada. But if you’ve got dual citizenship or money in the bank, you may be able to retire elsewhere. 

The Global Retirement Index, developed by Natixis Global Asset Management and CoreData Research, looks at the best places in the world to retire. Four main factors — finances in retirement, material wellbeing, health and quality of life — were used to calculate the best places to spend your autumn years. We put together a list of the 20 best places for Canadians to retire based on their 2016 retirement index results.
