Can I call myself as Deemed non-resident Canadian? If in name of significant residential ties, my wife and kids living in Canada but I’m living outside of Canada and for tax purpose I’m resident of another country (India).

As per CRA website (“If you established ties in a country that Canada has a tax treaty with and you are considered a resident of that country, but you are otherwise a factual resident of Canada, meaning you maintain significant residential ties with Canada, you may be considered a deemed non-resident of Canada. The same rules apply to deemed non-residents as non-residents of Canada”).

And as a deemed non-resident I don’t have to pay on any income I make in India? Am I right or wrong?
