Becoming a Canadian

Although you can't apply for Canadian citizenship until you have lived in Canada for at least three years, you can be thinking about what it means from the moment you arrive. Canadians believe that Canada is a special place. Most Canadians agree with the United Nations that "Canada is the best country in the world in which to live."

To obtain Canadian citizenship, you will have to demonstrate a deep commitment to this country.

  • You will need to meet the physical residence requirements. You must live in Canada for at least three years before applying to become a citizen.

  • You will need to have sufficient knowledge of either English or French.

  • You will need to demonstrate your knowledge of Canada and the responsibilities and privileges of citizenship.

  • You must be 18 years of age or older to apply as an individual.

The rights and responsibilities of citizenship

For many newcomers, this gift of citizenship, this special sense of belonging, is a goal that guides much of what they do every day. It involves pride. A belief in equality and diversity. Respect for others. It means accepting the shared values that make Canadians who they are, and respecting both the rights and the privileges of being Canadian.

Canadian citizenship is precious and respected. Citizenship is a contract between you and your country, to share in the rights and privileges citizenship offers, and to fully carry out the responsibilities that go with it.

How to apply
