Go to your local tax office and find out what papers you have to sign, and find out if they have a tax treaty with Canada. If you don't sign the appropriate paper work before earning wages, yes, you can be taxed TWICE on your income upon return to your country of origin. I've seen it happen more than once.

Damn really? That sucks.

I need to research more about this. If i am getting taxed in the UK for working in Canada then i probably wont leave. Plus i have this income for life here that they can cut me off soon as i start working. I need to figure out another plan.
