Canada & UK Youth Mobility Scheme

On the 14th July 2023, Canada and the United Kingdom signed a new and updated Canada UK Youth Mobility Arrangement. The recent development is a testimony to the thriving bilateral relations between the two nations opening new doors of opportunities for the youth of the two countries to travel, study and work in each other's nation. The recent agreement is a revision of an existent youth mobility partnership/arrangement that began in 2008, aimed at empowering Canadian and British youth, providing them with work opportunities to work and build a life in both countries.  


The arrangement signed between Canadian Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, Sean Fraser, and British High Commissioner to Canada, Susannah Goshko, was revised, revisited, and introduced many significant changes to its 2008 counterpart. The major improvements include the increase in the eligibility age, from 18-30 to 18-35, the introduction of two new streams thus increasing work opportunities, and an increase in the allowed period of stay from 2 to 3 years.  


The youth-oriented scheme, which will allow hundreds and thousands of Canadians and British Nationals to experience each other's culture and pursue lucrative jobs, is expected to be implemented in 2024. The scheme is envisaged to create numerous reciprocal job opportunities, which will not only strengthen the personal and professional lives of their citizens, but will also boost the economic development and growth of the two countries.  



Canada, popularly known as the most immigration-friendly country, has such youth mobility agreements of various kinds with 37 countries across the world and is inviting a record number of international immigrants each year to apply for Permanent Residency. Such agreements demonstrate Canada’s determination to support/fulfill its labor shortage and boost its economy by inviting skilled professionals from across the globe. This enables youth from such partner countries as the UK to move to Canada, look for relevant employment opportunities, and easily make a transition from temporary status in Canada to becoming Permanent Residents of the country. 


Such programs and unique initiatives by the Canadian government have given millions of people across the world, especially in Asian and African countries the life-changing opportunity to study and work in Canada thus building a better and brighter future for themselves.
