This substantial and well-written letter details the difficulties that TFSAs and RESPs pose for extraterritorial U.S. persons. Conclusion: “Canada is unlikely to influence the way the U.S. treats its citizens abroad, but the Canadian government should not be complicit in making life miserable for any of its law-abiding dual-citizen residents.”
