We believe in the citizens of Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom (the CANZUK countries) benefiting from a freedom of movement initiative, advancing the ever growing cultural, historical, economical and political connections that we already share through our Commonwealth ties.

Because of the unique relationship and socio-economic bonds that Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom share, we believe that each country can benefit from a mutual free movement agreement, similar to the policies of the Trans-Tasman Travel Arrangement (T.T.T.A) between Australia and New Zealand.

We propose that the governments of the aforementioned countries negotiate and finalize agreements which make it possible for citizens to move freely with no restrictions regarding work permits or visa controls (providing health, character and security checks are undertaken and accomplished).

Through mutual travel agreements and mobility schemes, Canadian, Australian, New Zealander and British governments can offer valuable economic connections, strengthen political relationships and benefit from cultural and historical traditions while strengthening trade, investment, military and diplomatic relationships for the future.

Freedom of movement is already a successful diplomatic ideology as seen with the T.T.T.A. Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom share the same Sovereign, the same common-law legal system, the same western culture, the same respect for democracy and even the same language - it is therefore logical and progressive for each to share the same economic, political and cultural benefits that a free movement policy would bring.

We hereby propose this petition to all members of the Canadian, Australian, New Zealander and British parliaments, and urge them to advocate such freedom of movement principles within their respective governments.
