Yes you can ....call Service Canada and they'll give you information on this. I don't have the number handy as I type but google it and you'll find it. You need to have record of the day you moved so keep your trucking/moving receipts. Apparently this is vital when yo go to file years later. I'm in the same boat, no where near retiring but...

You can claim them when you retire.

“...Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?”
