How do I become a Canadian Citizen
For the most updated information on applying for Canadian citizenship, see Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada. After having lived in Canada as a permanent resident for at least 3 years in the past 5 years before applying and demonstrating that you can communicate in English or French, you may be able to apply for Canadian citizenship.
The government website will break down the process of applying for citizenship into several steps. They include:
- Applying for citizenship
- Preparing for the citizenship test after applying for citizenship
- Taking the test
- The citizenship ceremony
Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada also provide online educational tools intended to help adults and children learn about citizenship, immigration and multiculturalism in a fun way.
The New Canadians Centre offers a Canadian Citizenship Test Preparation Workshop.
