Citizenship Refusals in Canada

Posted in Canadian Citizenship

There are so many reasons that can be stated for the refusal of an application. But the most common reason will be due to failure to satisfy the residency criteria. If you have not stayed in Canada for the required time period, you may not be eligible for citizenship status.

However, it is still possible to obtain your citizenship if you have not met the residency requirements. Chances of approval with such an application are slim but possible. It is true that each case is dealt seriously and in a unique manner. Those who have work experience and those who have lived in Canada for more than three years might be viewed in a different manner.

Some judges will consider the residency requirement in a different way. They might state that the three year period must be a consecutive one. They might emphasize the point that the residents should show a physical presence in Canada for three years.

Some judges might not be too strict. They will mention that a physical time period of three years in Canada is not required. If the applicant is able to show his connection or his ties with Canada in a genuine and justifiable manner, he might be provided with the citizenship status.

  • Your application can get rejected for other reasons like failure to meet the language requirements, failure to show bank account details and so on.
  • If you have been investigated by the police for having committed a serious crime, your application will be rejected, even though you show a good relation with the Canadian government.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.
