As a Canadian I will be applying for a UK work holiday visa, with hopes of finding work to support my stay in the UK and fund further European travel. I have heard a rumor that the Schengen Visa 90/180 day rule is exempt for UK work holiday visa holders but I can't find any reputable resources to support that claim.

Does anyone know about this?

Thanks in advance,
Melissa

No. Very firm no.

EU citizens are exempt from this rule. Also partially exempt are people who hold a WHV for one of the Schengen states. The UK is not part of Schengen, so no chance.
