Secure your future in Canada: apply for citizenship



Are you ready to become a Canadian citizen? Here are the basic requirements you need to meet in order to apply:


First, you must be a permanent resident of Canada. Additionally, you must have resided in Canada for at least 3 out of the last 5 years (which is equivalent to 1,095 days). It's important to ensure that you have filed your taxes, as this is a key requirement for citizenship.


You will also need to pass a citizenship test, which will assess your knowledge of Canadian history, values, institutions, and symbols. And finally, you will need to demonstrate your proficiency in either English or French, Canada's two official languages.


Keep in mind that there may be additional requirements based on your individual situation, so it's always best to consult with a qualified immigration professional to ensure that you are on the right track.



Application Process


You can apply for Canadian citizenship either online or through paper application. However, it is recommended to apply online unless you are not eligible. Applying both ways is not advisable.


The application fee for online and paper applications is the same:

Adult (18 years or older): $630

Minor (under 18 years): $100


Ensure to pay the fees online and include the receipts in your application, irrespective of the mode of application you choose.

Following the citizenship ceremony


Once you have attended the citizenship ceremony and become a Canadian citizen, you can access a range of helpful services and information. These may include applying for a passport, learning about how to vote in an election, and receiving one year of complimentary admission to Canada's natural parks and cultural centers.
