CITIZENSHIP

Canadian Citizenship is considered as one of the most coveted citizenship in the world; and it can be obtained through legally recognized permanent residence or specific family ties.

Having Canadian citizenship has many benefits including making global travel easier, more job opportunities, increased security, and many more. A resident who has maintained permanent residency status, lawfully, can apply for Canadian Citizenship through Permanent Residency Canada via this visa. Applicants can also procure a Canadian passport

Many Canadian permanent residents who have spent their time in this beautiful country are look forward to being granted citizenship and are eager for the day they can be sworn in as an official Canadian citizen. Before that day comes, there are a few final steps that need to be addressed before Immigration, Refugees, Citizenship Canada (IRCC) approves their Canadian citizenship application.

HOW DO I APPLY FOR CANADIAN CITIZENSHIP?

To apply for citizenship, you must meet certain eligibility criteria and complete an application. In order to apply for Canadian citizenship, you must:

  • Provide proof that you know how to speak and write in 1 of Canada’s official languages (either English or French)
  • Be a Permanent Resident
  • Have lived in Canada as a PR for at least 1,095 days out of the 5 years before you apply
  • Have filed your taxes for at least 3 years during the last 5 years and any income tax you may owe must be paid
  • Pass a test on your rights, responsibilities and knowledge of Canada.
  • Prove your language skills

Citizenship holders have the following benefits and obligations:

  • Citizens can vote in federal, provincial and municipal elections. Citizens can run as independent candidates, or by joining one of the established parties.
  • Canada does not make you choose between being a Canadian citizen and being a citizen of your home country. Depending on your home country, you may or may not have to make that choice.
  • Some jobs require high-level security clearance, which only citizens can have. This includes some jobs at the federal level. These jobs tend to pay well and have many benefits.
  • Canadian citizens get a passport, which is easier to renew and must be renewed less often than a permanent resident card.
  • The passport allows you to travel to many countries without the need for a visa and makes it easier to get a visa where one is required
  • As a citizen, if your children are born in Canada, they automatically become Canadian citizens. They will not have to go through any application process. Some children born outside Canada are also citizens at birth, if at least one parent was born or naturalized in Canada.
  • Canadian tax laws work on residency rather than citizenship. You can be a citizen but not live in Canada, and therefore not have to pay Canadian taxes. If you are a citizen who does live in Canada, you are required to pay Canadian taxes on worldwide income, and you must pay taxes at federal, provincial and municipal levels.

SOME POINTS TO BE NOTED

  • If you are or have been a member of the Canadian Armed Forces, you may be eligible for a fast-track application process.
  • The applicant must be a Canadian citizen or be applying to become a Canadian citizen. Minors do not need to meet the residency requirement.
  • If one of your parents was a Canadian citizen when you were born, depending on when you were born, you may already be a citizen. If that is true, to be recognized as a Canadian citizen you need to apply for proof of citizenship.

You cannot become a Canadian citizen if you have recently been or are in prison, on parole or probation, are serving a conditional sentence or have been charged or convicted of an indictable crime. If you are under a deportation order, you also cannot apply.
