Canadian Citizenship

Canadian Citizenship

Complete the Canadian Dream With Your Citizenship!

Canadian citizenship gives you all of the rights and responsibilities as a Canadian-born citizen.

Only permanent residents can apply for this privilege after living 1,095 days out of the last five years inside of Canada. It is also mandatory to score at least 4 in the Canadian  Language Benchmark (CLB) under one of the two official languages (English or French).

You also need to demonstrate your knowledge of Canadian culture. The test is 20 questions long and includes subjects like history, geography, economy, government structure, laws, and Canadian symbols. You approve your citizenship test if you score 15 correct answers.

All incomplete applications will be returned by Immigration Canada (IRCC). 

If you are ready to apply for your Canadian citizenship, call us and we will indicate the options available to you.

It will depend on the program, the country of residence and the processing times in effect by the Canadian immigration offices when the application is submitted. You can find the approximate current processing times here.

Please keep in mind that these processing times are estimates. Sometimes offices process cases, prioritizing applications depending on several factors. Also, at times applications are forwarded to other processing centers that may have a lower work backlog, thus, reducing processing times considerably. If your application was not professionally prepared or contains errors or omissions, the processing times will be increased for several months or even years.
