  3. Time you have lived in Canada
  4. Language skills
  5. Criminal history
  6. How well you know Canada

How Well Do You Know Canada?

Sufficient knowledge about the country is a requirement. You must know at least the basic things about Canada. Officials in the immigration center will not be questioning you about all these details, since most of the civilizations which have started long back have completely faded out.  So what exactly do you need to know about Canada's history? You just have to know a little bit about the countries which have colonized Canada and the condition of Canadian people during the two world wars. The recent history can also be read to have a better understanding.

You need to have knowledge about the geography of the place. For example know about Canada's lakes, rivers, mountains etc.

It is also good to know about the rights and responsibilities of the citizens in Canada, before you actually start this process.

Do You Have Knowledge About the Official Languages?

Those who know more about the official languages in Canada or those who know how to read, speak and understand at least one of the official languages, will stand a better chance in getting citizenship. On the whole, people who have a lot of knowledge about the languages used in Canada and about the overall lifestyle of Canadians will stand a better chance in getting citizenship.

There will also be a written test or an oral test that has to be completed. This is mainly to check the proficiency in speaking and understanding the language.

Will Officials Believe That You Are Proficient Without Certificates?

No verbal statement will be accepted in immigration office. Unless you have a solid proof, they will not recognize your ability. Thus you need to produce proper proof for language. You need to submit this along with the regular application. If you fail to do this and if you have stated that you are proficient in the official language of Canada, it will not be accepted. Sometimes, this can also be a reason for rejecting the form. Thus you need to keep in mind that it is wise to submit the application along with all the supporting documents.

    Akrami & Associates was extremely professional and the most efficient legal team I have ever had the pleasure of dealing. They responded to my emails quickly, never missed a phone call and explained the process to me in such a way that anyone could understand, even me. Thanks to them, I was able to hire the workers my business needed mush sooner than I had ever expected. You can’t go wrong with them.

    Fantastic news, I entered Canada without a hitch. Once the guard at the border saw the package you had prepared for me, he took about ten minutes and handed me my permit. What I relief! I don’t know why I ever tried this without you guys! Thank you!

    Reception was very nice and was sure to answer the questions he could but made sure I was taken care of by a rep at the firm. Shabnam was extremely helpful and I will be calling again when I am ready to proceed.

    Shabnam, I wanted to personally thank you for all your hard work and dedication to me and my wife. Our new lives together are all thanks to you. Considering the unique circumstances that initially prevented her, I had lost hope. I will make sure that if anyone I know needs immigration help, I will be sending them your way. Again, I can’t thank you enough.
