My question is that my stay in Asia can be considered a residence in Canada, based on my relationship with Canada during the period of absence, so I start getting OAS in 2020, if I move to Asia All these agreements are based on the concept of shared responsibility. Responsibility-sharing agreements are reciprocal. Under each agreement, partner countries make concessions to their social security qualification rules so that those covered by the agreement have access to payments that they may not be eligible for. The responsibility for social security is thus distributed among the countries in which a person has lived during his or her working years and where the person is able to obtain potential rights. In general, it is possible to access a pension from one country in the second country, although the paying country retains some discretion with regard to the exchange and delivery mechanisms used.

Gordon Other issues I have that Canada had a social security agreement with Hong Kong after British rule (before 1997), it would be applicable, and help him fulfill the 10 years of legal stay required in Canada to collect the OAS? I am a Colombian citizen and have been living in Canada for 15 years, I am 55 years old and I intend to continue living in Canada and retire here. However, I worked for 12 years in Colombia, and after I arrived, I continue to pay my retirement plan in Colombia. I know there is no agreement between Canada and Colombia. So the question is when I`m 65, can I receive pension funds from Canada and Colombia? Because I pay in both systems?
