I was just reading on the tax lien investing process and how it works in the United States.

I was wondering if it happens in other countries. In specific, I would like to know if it happens in Canada and allows for citizens to invest money in that fashion or is there an similar/different process that occurs in Canada.

Canada does not have tax lien certificates. Instead, they do tax deed sales. Because the process is much further along, often involving local sheriffs, it is much closer to a U.S. foreclosure sale/auction process than a tax lien as you are likely thinking. The laws and processes vary by province as well, so you'll want to contact the provincial government tax offices to get the details.
