I have heard it said many times that Canada is New Zealand on steroids. The mountains, the lakes, the beaches, the space. Canada has exactly what New Zealand has only it’s…Canadian. So where should you live? Canada or New Zealand?

In this week’s show, we are excited to introduce Randy and Suzanne, a couple who have lived together in Ontario Canada, for the past thirty years. Randy is Canadian and Suzanne is a kiwi. She was born in New Zealand, moved to Canada when she was seventeen years old. She met Randy, fell in love,  and the rest is history!

But. The story doesn’t end there. 

Later this year, Randy and Suzanne are going to leave Canada for good and retire in New Zealand

You are about to find out why…

Leaving Canada To Retire in New Zealand. The Motives.

In this week’s show, I ask randy and Suzanne:

  • Why did you choose Canada or NZ?
  • Was Canada ever home to Suzanne?
  • What is so wonderful about Canada?
  • Why did you choose to retire in New Zealand?
  • Did you need a visa to come to New Zealand?
  • What excites you most about living in New Zealand?
  • For someone considering moving to Canada, what is something that they should know?


If you are moving to New Zealand then you will love this show. It will also serve as a reminder of how important it is to surround yourself with like-minded people whenever you are about to tackle something as huge as moving to the other side of the world!

Randy and Suzanne are valuable and very treasured members of our private community (that we affectionately call the NZ Slackers!). The input that they offer to those going through this same journey is priceless.


The wonderful Randy and Suzzanne!
