The Convention on Social Security between Canada and United Kingdom (U.K.) was signed January 16, 1997 in London, England. The Convention came into force on April 1, 1998. The Convention only covers contributions and does not include benefits or indexing of U.K. pensions paid in Canada.
The Consolidated Arrangements came into force on December 1, 1995. The Consolidated Arrangements allow residents of the U.K. to use periods of residence in Canada as if they were periods of contribution to the U.K. National Insurance Scheme in order to determine eligibility to U.K. social security benefits.
