Every year over 150,000 people become citizens of Canada. To be eligible for Canadian citizenship you must be a Canadian permanent resident and have been physically present in Canada for 1,095 days within the four years prior to submitting your application. You must also have adequate knowledge of English or French.
If you are aged between 18-54 you will be required to pass a citizenship test as part of the application process. The test assesses your knowledge of Canadian history, politics, geography and the rights and responsibilities of being a Canadian citizen.
The final step in the application process is to attend a citizenship ceremony where applicants need to take the Oath of Citizenship. Upon taking the Oath of Citizenship you will become a Canadian citizen and receive your citizenship certificate.
Canada permits dual nationality so it may be possible to become a Canadian citizen without losing your existing citizenship.
