    Been ordered to leave Canada

    Canadian Citizenship Application

    Once you meet certain requirements to become a Canadian citizen, you need to submit a Canadian citizenship application.

    A Canadian citizenship application is subject to many conditions. These standards were altered in October 2017 to provide Canadians flexibility in meeting the requirements, regardless of whether they are recognized, unrecognized, an adult, or a minor. To become Canadian citizenship, firstly a person must be admitted as a permanent resident within Canada for several years. The privileges of each individual in Canada are safeguarded by the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

    Canadian Citizenship Test

    Once your Canadian citizenship application has been approved, you may need to take a citizenship test. The citizenship test is intended to let you show off your knowledge of Canada. There are 20 questions which cover:

    Rights and Responsibilities of Canadians







    The test lasts 30 minutes and can be given in either French or English. The test is both multiple-choice and true/false questions. In special cases, the test may be administered orally. You will be invited to take the citizenship test after receiving confirmation that your completed application has started being processed. You will be assigned a date and time to attend the exam.

    If you are unable to attend the exam, you will need to write to the government and explain why they need to give you a new date. If you do not have a valid reason, your application may be terminated. If you need to ask for a new date and have a valid reason, you will be given a new date and time.

    Canadian Citizenship Test taking has resumed after being paused during COVID-19. The IRCC is now allowing individuals to take an online citizenship tests.

    Who Needs to Attend an Interview?

    After you complete your test, you will have an interview. Your test results will be provided to you prior to the interview. You will be offered a date for your citizenship ceremony if you pass your test. Your language proficiency, the validity of your application and supporting documents, and your compliance with citizenship criteria will all be covered during the interview.

    You will be given another chance to pass the test if you don’t pass the first time but still fulfil the other citizenship requirements. You will have another interview with a citizenship authority if you don’t succeed the second time. Your application will be rejected if, after three attempts, you are unable to pass the test.

    Oath of Citizenship

    The final step in the citizenship process is the oath of citizenship. Normally, two weeks before the ceremony, you will be informed of the date. If for any reason you are unable to attend, please let us know so that we can arrange another date. All throughout the year, ceremonies are held across Canada. During Citizenship Week and Canada Day, special oath ceremonies are held.

    Permanent Resident Status

    Regardless of your age, if you’re applying for Canadian citizenship, you must have a Permanent Resident Card in Canada.

    This means you must not:

    be under review for immigration or fraud reasons

    be asked by Canadian officials to leave Canada (removal order)

    have unfulfilled conditions related to your PR status, for example, medical screening

    Before applying for Canadian citizenship, you should review the documents you received when you became a permanent resident to make sure you’re eligible.
