Application for Canadian Citizenship

Eligibility and Application Process

Applicants must be permanent residents of Canada and meet the physical presence requirements. Having a Permanent Resident (PR) status is paramount in this process.

Here are a few things to consider:

  • Residency documentation is crucial to establish proof of residency.
  • There are exceptions to the residency requirement under certain circumstances.
  • Calculating physical presence accurately is vital for eligibility.
  • Travel outside Canada can impact the overall physical presence calculation.
  • Providing supporting evidence for residency strengthens the citizenship application.

Language Proficiency and Citizenship Test

Understanding and demonstrating proficiency in either English or French is crucial to the Canadian citizenship application process. Preparing for the test requires familiarity with the language requirements, the assessment’s format, and the use of suitable study materials. We always say passing the exam is one of the most important steps in the process of becoming a Canadian citizen.

Preparation Steps Description
Language Requirements Proficiency in English or French at CLB Level 4 or higher or completion of a secondary or post education in either English or French
Test Format Knowledge of Canada's history, values, institutions, and symbols

5(4) Discretionary Grant of Canadian Citizenship

The Canadian Citizenship Grant is a discretionary grant that the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration can issue to anybody under exceptional circumstances. It is meant to alleviate statelessness, severe hardship or recognize remarkable contributions to Canada. We can analyze your case at Hayer Law and decide whether you are eligible for naturalization and the Canadian citizenship grant.

Following a successful language proficiency test and citizenship test, applicants move to the final stage of the citizenship process: the Oath of Citizenship.
