OVER 1000 CANADIANS HEAD TO ECUADOR FOR THEIR RETIREMENT Cost of living 3 times lower, perfect year-round weather The trend is not new: each year, thousands of Canadians flee the cold and the snow, heading south to sun destinations for weeks or months at a time. But for the most part, only the most adventurous dare to take the next big step and acquire their own property outside of Canada.


GUIDANCE AND SUPPORT: KEY FACTORS The Canadian company HolaEcuador understood the challenges faced by Canadian snowbirds and now facilitates the sun property acquisition process. After having visited Mexico, Costa Rica and Panama, company co-owners Yves Cormier and Gordon Poole chose Ecuador as the ideal location. The quality of the country’s infrastructure, incredible biodiversity, low cost of living, beautiful landscapes, accessible and modern healthcare system and year-round mild climate were the decisive factors. “ Since 2010 we have helped hundreds of Canadians acquire a property on the Pacific coast of Ecuador”, says M. Cormier, VP Sales and Marketing. “We are literally creating an entire seaside village. Of the 1,700 properties that we had available at the start of the project, only 700 remain unsold. And now with the majority of the site infrastructure completed, home construction is ramping up quickly.”

GOOD TIME TO INVEST For now, Ecuador remains a relatively well-kept secret. Properties in Ecuador are much more affordable than in similar tourist destinations, which is one of the main reasons that Canadian travellers and investors are flocking to the region. “Prices reflect what was available in Costa Rica 15 years ago, but in a country where first-rate and modern infrastructure is already in place” confirms Mr. Poole. “Further, the Ecuadorian government is very stable and the currency is the US dollar, which is also very reassuring for investors.”, he adds. All that said, prices are rising quickly with the current real estate boom in the region. The Oulianovs wanted to act quickly and take advantage of the favourable market. “The development itself is spectacular - an endless beautiful beach, lots of parks and gardens, services available right on the site, and a ton of activities available in the region. We’re convinced that this will be a fantastic community in a secure and comfortable environment.” TO GET MORE INFORMATION “At HolaEcuador’s informational seminar I was pleased to discover the high level of professionalism of the developers and the overall quality of the project. In addition to providing lots of interesting information about Ecuador in general, Mr. Poole also provided an in-depth look into this residential project and he took the time to answer numerous questions from the participants. The information that was provided at the seminar left me with a great deal of confidence to take the next steps in realizing my dream. “ says Al Hendley, a client in Ottawa.
