Your Expatriate Tax Filing Obligations
If you left Canada to work temporarily in another country and have maintained significant residential ties with Canada, you are considered to be a factual resident of Canada. This means that, although you left Canada, for expatriate income tax purposes you are regarded in fact to be a resident of Canada.
Other types of factual residents include those vacationing outside of Canada for extended periods of time, those teaching or attending school in another country, and those commuting to the U.S. and returning to Canada for work purposes on a daily or weekly basis.
