Regarding Australia and Canada, In 2006, the number of people who relocated to Australia was 42,000, which was 6,000 more than in Canada. After three years, Australia recorded the relocation of 52,000 British nationals, the highest figure in four years. The second most desired nation among British citizens was Canada, with almost the same number of resettlements of 36,000 people in 2006 and 2007, but its popularity declined in the following two years, with fewer than 30,000 migrations noted in 2008 and 2009.
