Canadians pride themselves in their citizenship rights and the status and freedom that is provides.
In the recent years, Canada has opened its arms to more than 260,000 permanent residents each year. Many of whom are moving towards obtaining citizen status in the near future. In late 2017, important changes to Canadian citizenship legislation came into effect, making the process to apply for Canadian citizenship faster and easier than ever.

Eligibility for Canadian Citizenship

Permanent residents looking to gain the citizenship status must meet the following eligibility requirements :

  • Have lived in Canada for three years (1,095 days) during the five years before you sign and submit your citizenship application. Days physically spent in Canada as a student, visitor, worker, temporary resident, or protected person within the last five years may be used to count one half day, up to 365 days, toward the 1,095 day total;
  • Meet the minimum language requirements in either English or French. Applicants between the ages of 18 and 54 will be required to show proof of their language proficiency;
  • Possess a basic knowledge of a Canadian citizen’s rights and responsibilities, as well as knowledge of Canadian history, geography, and political system in order to pass the Canadian citizen test once their application is approved;
  • Must not have a criminal history that will prohibit the granting of Canadian citizenship.

Application and Canadian Citizenship Test

Once the eligibility criteria is met , one need to fill the citizen application form.

On confirmation of the receipt of the application and approval from the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada,(or IRCC), the applicants will be required to take a citizenship test. IRCC sends a notice with the time and date for test well in advance.

The test generally takes 30 minutes to complete.In compliance with regulations, some applicants are also asked to appear before a citizenship judge for an interview. Interviews are generally 15 to 30 minutes in length.

On the day of the test, applicants are required to bring all original documents, including immigration documents, passport, photo identification, and any other documents relevant to the applicant's permanent residence in Canada.

Minors (under 18 years of age) are not required to sit the test. Applicants between the age of 18 and 54 are also required to pass a language test in English or French.

Successful applicants must then attend a citizenship ceremony where they receive a certificate of Canadian citizenship and officially become new Canadian citizens.
