Browsing: Canadian Citizenship

The eligibility requirements to become a Canadian citizen vary depending on your situation.
Standard eligibility requirements are set for an adult (at least 18 years of age) permanent resident of Canada. Spouses of Canadian citizens also must meet the same eligibility requirements for adults as they are not yet considered as Canadian citizens. Current or former members of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) may be eligible to apply through a fast-track process. They must meet the standard qualifications to resume citizenship with the exception that their length of service in, or with, the CAF will be considered instead of the length of time they lived in Canada. Former Canadian citizens who wish to get back Canadian citizenship and adopted children born outside Canada also have separate conditions to meet to become Canadian citizens.

Standard eligibility requirements
Conditions in all areas (age, permanent resident status, time lived in Canada, income tax filing, intent to reside, language skills, how well you know Canada and prohibitions) must be met to be eligible to become a Canadian citizen.
