Planning a Move to Canada From UK?
If you’re thinking about making the move to Canada from UK you’re part of a growing trend. Ever since the referendum in 2016 Google Trends has shown a steadily increasing number of people searching for information on moving to this beautiful country. Apart from Brexit there are plenty of reasons for this; Canada’s breathtaking scenery, Canadians’ welcoming attitude to immigrants, and of course, so much of the Canadian culture feels familiar.
Most of Canada’s 36.4 million inhabitants live in the major cities of Vancouver on the West Coast, or Toronto, Ottawa, Quebec City in the East. A recent survey named Regina, in Saskatchewan as the top ranked city for jobs and affordable homes. In fact it’s the third most affordable city in Canada and job opportunities are currently increasing ahead of population growth.

Three Things To Think About
- Working Holiday Visa – if you’re under 30, you might want to consider a temporary visa, before going through the more lengthy process of applying for permanent residency. Around 5,000 working holiday visas are issued to Brits every year and they cover you for 2 years residency in the country.
- The Housing Market in Canada – global economists are watching Canada’s property market carefully as there are rumours that it may be over-valued. Properties in Toronto and Vancouver are now pricing even the middle-classes out of the market. There are no restrictions on foreigners buying property, but you may want to check out the Non-Resident Speculation Tax
- The Weather – obviously the weather will vary according to which region of Canada you plan to settle in, but it’s worth doing careful research before deciding on your destination. Edmonton, for example experienced 167 days of temperatures below 0℃ this year, which is a long winter by anybody’s standards.
