With Brexit now a reality, there’s been a surge of interest among people wondering how to move to Canada from the UK.
In the 24 hours after the result, Moving2Canada had a spike in traffic, and almost half of our visits came from the UK alone.

International Experience Canada (IEC).
Each year, up to 65,000 people aged between 18 and 35 come to Canada on two-year working holiday visas. They’re handed out as part of the International Experience Canada initiative. Some 5,000 people move to Canada from the UK each year on these visas.
Anyone meeting the eligibility criteria can express an interest in receiving a visa. At random intervals, some are selected to formally apply, and have two weeks to submit the paperwork.
The application process for this year actually began in November 2015. There are currently just five of these visas left for 2016, so you may have to wait until the winter before you can apply.
To get prepared, see our Working Holiday Visa in Canada guide.
