Citizenship Eligibility 

Although it may seem an easy and straight-forward process, applying for Canadian citizenship might be confusing and tricky.

Eligibility to become a Canadian citizen differs based on several factors, but in general term these conditions are:

  • be a permanent resident

  • have lived in Canada for 3 out of the last 5 years

  • have filed your taxes, if you need to

  • show how well you know Canada

  • prove your language skills
