    The report, entitled “The Trans-Tasman Travel Agreement: Recommendations For The Australian Foreign Policy White Paper, 2017 ”, details how Canada and the United Kingdom can coordinate accession to the Trans-Tasman Travel Agreement which currently exists between Australia and New Zealand.

    Under CANZUK International’s proposals, the governments of Canada and the United Kingdom would grant reciprocal living and working rights to Australian and New Zealander citizens; a proposal which has been backed by over 189,000 people through our online petition.

    The report was submitted to the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade as part of Australia’s public appeal for foreign policy recommendations in December 2016, and can be viewed via the official DFAT website here.

    The Australian government will now review all submissions in the upcoming months to determine the future of Australia’s foreign policy. Supporters of free movement between Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom are encouraged to contact their local Member of Parliament and pledge their support for CANZUK International’s proposals.
