a Canadian Citizen
Under the Citizenship Act, individuals with three years of permanent
resident status in the preceding four years before submitting
their application can qualify for Canadian Citizenship.
Applications can either be submitted at the local citizenship
office in their area of residence. Applicants may also submit
their applications directly to the Citizenship office in Sydney,
Upon the receipt of applicant’s application, the Citizenship
office would send a Brochure containing general and some important
information about Canada. This is to enable the Applicant acquire
knowledge of certain historical values of Canada, its culture
and cherished values. Applicants are thereafter scheduled for
an informal test/interview with a Citizenship officer to review
the merits of the Applicants Application.
If the applicant was successful at this test, applicants may
be subsequently required to appear before a Citizenship Judge
to be administered Citizenship oath and pledge his or her allegiance
to the queen. Though these are subject to the applicant meeting
other conditions provided under the Citizenship Act, e.g. background
check, residency requirement etc.
