The UK All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for CANZUK will meet on May 18th to discuss continued developments of CANZUK policies and the introduction of mutual skills recognition between Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
The All-Party Parliamentary Group for CANZUK, heading by Paul Bristow MP, will invite MPs from across the UK to attend and discuss the benefits of mutual skills recognition between the four nations.
As the UK seeks membership of the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) – a free trade agreement between Canada, Australia, New Zealand and 8 other countries across the world – a CANZUK agreement can further enhance the UK’s membership by recognizing skills and qualifications of CANZUK citizens.
An agreement between the four nations would emulate an existing agreement between Australia and New Zealand, where skilled persons can practice their trade or profession in either country without the requirement to re-train or re-certify credentials.

This agreement would be further enhanced by Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom signing mutual agreements to permit the free movement of people, goods and services.
“We have a lot of work to do to increase awareness of this vital cog in the wheel of the UK’s future trade and economic cooperation,” said Bristow in a previous statement.
“The APPG will be working closely with CANZUK International and all the other domestic groups pressing the agenda of mutual economic, trade, migration and security cooperation.”
CANZUK International looks forward to engaging in discussions with the UK APPG and promoting policies respective of free movement, trade, foreign policy cooperation and skills recognition between Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
