Lastly, if you are investing in using other currencies, you might experience extra benefits from Canadian currency appreciation. 

For example, the currency exchange rate changed from 1 CAD to 41.5 Indian Rupee 10 years ago to 1: 52 today (xe.com).

This means if you purchase a fraction of property that worths 40,000 Indian Rupee, in addition to the 11% annual return, your actual return in Indian rupee will be 25% more [(52-41.5)/41.5]. The value you receive at year 10 end would be around 141,971 Indian Rupee (10 years from 40K to 141K)

Another example, the currency exchange rate changed from 1 CAD to 69 Pakistan Rupee 10 years ago to 1:105 today (xe.com).

This means if you purchase a fraction of property that worths 100,000 Pakistan Rupee, in addition to the 11% annual return, your actual return in Indian rupee will be 52% more [(105-69)/69]. The value you receive at year 10 end would be around 431,592 Pakistan Rupee (10 years from 100K to 432K).
