Can I live and work in Canada with a British passport?

Work on the side If you are a British citizen aged 18 to 30 and want to perform temporary paid work in Canada, maybe while traveling throughout the nation, you can apply for an open work visa through the Working Holiday Scheme. You can work for up to 24 months with these permissions.

The visa is only available to citizens of certain countries that meet specific requirements. These include having a country that is not listed as a threat to Canadian security or otherwise harming Canadian interests. In addition, citizens of certain other countries may be eligible to apply for a working holiday visa if they meet certain criteria. These include being young (you must be under 35), capable of supporting yourself, and willing to travel to visit friends and family in Canada.

Citizens from most countries can now apply for a visa allowing them to enter and stay in Canada for up to 90 days to take advantage of this program. The new system was launched on January 1, 2014 and it is called the Express Entry Program. Under this new system, applicants first complete a comprehensive questionnaire about their skills and qualifications, which is then used to match them with suitable jobs. After finding such a job, they will need to pay a fee to secure their place by putting themselves on a waiting list. When there are openings, candidates will be called up according to how much they have paid for their ticket.
