Applying for Citizenship
To apply for citizenship, you must do the following:
-Fill out the application form
-Pay the application cost, which is now $100 for adults
-Provide supporting documentation, such as documentation of your physical presence in Canada and proof of your permanent residency.
To prove your understanding of Canada, you must pass a test if you are applying for citizenship. Questions about Canadian history, geography, culture, and government are part of the test. Before being invited to a citizenship ceremony and becoming a Canadian citizen, you must pass this test.
After passing the citizenship exam, you will get an invitation to the swearing-in ceremony. You will take the Citizenship Oath during this event, and you'll also get your citizenship certificate.
