I'm a Canadian AD and I'm thinking of working in Europe. Does anyone have any advice on how they've gone about making their first leap to an agency outside of their own country?

How old are you? If you’re under 30, you can go for a 2-year working holiday visa in the UK (Brexit shouldn’t impact this).

I’m also Canadian but have a EU passport so didn’t have to worry much about that. I reached out to a bunch of CD’s until one of them gave me a shot and now I work in London.

Ah okay that's good to know! I know Canada has a working holiday agreement with quite a few countries for Canadians under 30. I'm going to start reaching out to CD's while trying to work with a recruiter as well I think.
