Let’s take a look at these frequently asked questions to find out more about Canadian citizenship.
Under Canadian law, a Canadian is allowed to be a citizen of another country. Some countries, however, will not let you keep their citizenship if you become a Canadian citizen. The consulate or embassy of your home country of citizenship can advise you know if this applies to you.
You must have accumulated at least three years of residence on the day you sign your application (equal to 1,095 days).
If you do not appear for your scheduled citizenship test, you will receive a letter by mail telling you to appear for an interview with a citizenship judge.
If you miss that interview, another interview will be scheduled for you and you will receive a notice of that second scheduled date by registered mail. If you do not attend the second scheduled interview, your file will be closed.
If you do not attend the citizenship ceremony and do not contact the citizenship office within 60 days, your file will be closed. You will then have to fill out another application form and pay the fee to go through the entire process again.
It usually takes approximately twelve months to process citizenship applications.
