I am moving to France. I will become a resident of France. I am not intending to return to Canada. I want to keep a non registered brokerage account in Canada. Does France allow me to buy securities in Canada through my brokerage account? I get conflicting advice from brokerage firms in Canada. Some tell me I have to close my account when moving out of Canada (Scotia iTrade), Some tell me they have to freeze my account with them but I can keep the account open for selling. Some tell me I can keep buying and selling stocks even if I am not a resident (RBC, TD, BMO). What are the rules?
