About Citizenship

Canadian Citizenship gives you the right to enter and stay in Canada, vote in elections, and participate in government.  It also guarantees you protection under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

There are three ways to become a Canadian citizen:  be born in Canada, have at least one parent who is a Canadian citizen or, be granted citizenship. The grant of Canadian citizenship is called naturalization and requires you to fill out an application.

IRCC asks a series of questions to determine whether you are eligible to become a Canadian citizen. Only those who meet the eligibility requirements may apply. To apply for Canadian citizenship, you have to complete the necessary forms and submit documents to prove you meet these requirements. You will also have to take a citizenship test and a citizenship oath.
