A few thoughts:

If you don't complete your PPL in Canada you won't be able to complete it here, as far as I'm aware. You'll probably have to go back at some point to 'mop up'.

For my PPL (Inverness), availability of examiners and weather for an extended cross country could have held up training significantly. It didn't, but it could have (and I'm sure that's true for anywhere within the UK).

I lived close to Inverness and did very little apart from learning to fly and revising for the exams for several weeks. If you're actually meant to be spending time with family (in-laws or your own?) then I'd be anxious about whether you can achieve both missions. If you can nip down to the airport whilst they're doing their day-jobs then it might work OK.

You will need some re-training to use UK airspace, and possibly before anybody will hire you out a plane. If you can afford to buy a permit type or share in such, and keep it close to Oxford, then do so.

I completed the syllabus after 31 hours and had to do 4 hours revision before I could take my GFT.
Actually you could have done the GFT and done the remaining hours afterwards. Nothing new about misinformation!

But you could in a lot of other countries that are not affected by EU bureaucracy, where ICAO recomendations are followed.

I did do a flying course before whilst I was in the CCF Air Cadets. I flew about 10 hours and did a solo circuit, but I was 17 and silly/careless and lost the logbook
Sound like you did the ACPS with Tayside Aviation in Dundee. If so, you should be able to recover your hours if you speak nicely to them, because they keep and archive all the records (assuming they have not binned them all in advance of GDPR )

No idea if these hours are any use these days (I'm long-since retired)...they used to be.

Any hours flown with an ICAO FI will count in the USA/Canada
