1 year is a bit too long to be considered a vacation in Canada. It would be safer to inform CRA of your travel plans so in case they feel like stopping your CCTB, they can do it and you wont have to worry about getting caught and having to repay if you didn't tell them and they somehow found out.maya_india said:i would like to ask some doubts.

4, my spouse filed my TAX for the period of 2014 and 2015, even though am not employed
5, what are other things which i should worried about
kindly reply from all experts or who had any similar situations
As long as you still keep a home in Canada and have not asked CRA to consider you a non-resident for tax purposes, you should continue to file taxes.
Another concern is health care. In most cases, you lose your health care if you leave your province for that long and you would have to let them know that you are leaving and if you live in a province with a waiting period, you re-do the waiting period when you come back. That goes for your kids as well. Therefore it is important that you talk to your health care to prevent any misunderstanding and if you have a waiting period coming back before you are covered, you should get temporary insurance for you and your kids in case there is an emergency.
