Hi,

Thank you for your question and welcome.

My name is AJ and I will assist you.

If you are British Citizen you do not require Visa to visit Canada. Accordingly any criminal convictions wont be relevant.

If you require a work permit it depends on the type of Job you are after. Generally driving offences are not considered dishonest or violent, therefore it is unlikely that having a driving conviction will prevent you from being able to get a work permit. Whether you are eligible for a work permit really depends on what type of job you are after, for example do you have an employer to sponsor you?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards

AJ
