Apply For Canadian Citizenship

Is it time to ​apply for Canadian ​Citzenship?


If you are a Permanent Resident of Canada, the time is right to apply for Canadian Citizenship. You are eligible for citizenship if you have resided in Canada for 3 out of the past 5 years immediately prior to your application. You may count each day that they were present in Canada as a temporary resident or protected person before becoming a permanent resident as a half-day toward meeting the physical presence requirement for citizenship, up to a maximum credit of 365 days.

If your child has one parent who is a Canadian citizen or a parent who is applying to become a Canadian citizen, the time is right to apply for citizenship for that child.  Children of one Canadian born parent can apply for citizenship regardless of where they were born or where they reside.
