New UK & Canada Youth Mobility Arrangement Announced

On July 14, 2023, a new Canada–United Kingdom (UK) Youth Mobility Arrangement was announced.

The new arrangement builds on an existing youth mobility partnership that began in 2008 and includes a number of improvements:

  • The eligibility age will expand from 18 to 30 to 18 to 35.
  • Two new streams—International Co-op (Internship) and Young Professionals—will be added to complement the existing Working Holiday category for UK nationals visiting Canada.
  • The total period that participants will be able to stay will increase from 2 to 3 years.

Canada and the UK anticipate implementing the new arrangement in 2024.
