If you hold dual citizenship-Canadian and French
Hello I haven't been able to connect with lots of Canadians wanting to move to France or living there already. I was born in France but also have Canadian citizenship. Our daughter lives in Bretagne she's expecting a baby in September.
We are thinking of moving to France permanently but am very concerned about the fluctuations in the currency market. I am retired and my pension is in Canadian dollars. My husband doesn't have a pension just a little money we put aside for him. We can live comfortably here but am wondering if we will manage as well in France. We would have the money from the sale of our house but taxes might eat away some of the profit. Any thoughts on how to deal with the money issue, ie. converting Canadian dollars into euros without losing too much in the process would be greatly appreciated.
As a returning French citizen who has not lived in France for all of her adult life I wonder what my rights are, am I entitled, for instance, to health insurance, work etc... My husband is Canadian but his mom was a naturalized French citizen originally from Poland. I'm not sure where her documents are, she died a long time ago.
I'm just very confused about this whole move especially the taxes and the currency situation. I don't relish the idea of being constantly subject to fluctuations in the currency market. Thanks for taking the time.
