Understanding Canadian Citizenship

Under the Citizenship Act, individuals can become Canadian citizens through various means. Here’s a breakdown of the key criteria and application process:

Criteria for Citizenship:

Born in Canada:

Individuals born in Canada after February 14, 1977, are automatically Canadian citizens.

Born Outside Canada:

Individuals born outside Canada after February 14, 1977, can be citizens if at least one parent was born in Canada or is a naturalised Canadian citizen.

Special Cases:

Some individuals born in Canada before February 14, 1977, or born outside Canada to a Canadian citizen parent before February 14, 1977, may also be citizens. Those who lost their Canadian citizenship in the past may also be eligible.

Application Process:

To apply for Canadian citizenship, individuals must submit a paper-based application, as online applications are not yet available.

Applicants must demonstrate sufficient physical presence in Canada and an intention to continue residing in the country.

Those aged 14 to 64 must also show proficiency in English or French and pass a citizenship test covering Canada’s political system, history, and geography.

Eligibility Requirements:

Applicants must have lived in Canada as a permanent resident for at least 4 years (1,460 days) within the 6 years before applying.

They must also be physically present in Canada for at least 183 days in each of the 4 calendar years.

Applicants must have filed Canadian income tax returns for at least 4 years within the last six years and declare their intention to reside in Canada.

Children’s Citizenship:

Children under 18, who are permanent residents and have a parent (or legal guardian) who is either a Canadian citizen or applying for citizenship, are exempt from the residency requirement.

Dual Citizenship and Surrendering Foreign Citizenship:

Canada allows dual citizenship, but individuals should check the requirements of their other country of citizenship, as some countries do not permit it. Surrendering foreign citizenship may be required.
