Why apply for Canadian citizenship?

From the mountains and glaciers, maple forests, and stunning waterways, Canada’s natural beauty is beyond words. However, nature isn’t the only attraction for citizenship applicants. Having cosmopolitan, investor-friendly, and multiethnic cities, Canada has become the hometown of many foreigners. With some of the world’s largest cities, a developed medical and finance sector, and a developing industry, Canada offers excellent long term commercial and settlement opportunities.

Every year Canada welcomes thousands of people to its citizenship list. 

Eligibility of Canada citizenship application

  • It is mandatory to have lived in Canada for the last 3 years (1095 days) of your last 5 years.
  • File your taxes for the last 3 years if necessary.
  • Must have a PR status card.
  • You need to pass a citizenship test (18 – 54 years, 20 questions).
  • Qualify in your language capability (English, French). In order to become a Canadian citizen, you need to qualify for a CLB benchmark of level 4 or more.

The requirements differ depending on whether the applicant is under 18 (minor status), a Canadian adopting a child from abroad, or a former Canadian citizen seeking to regain citizenship.

Advantages of Citizenship over Permanent Residence 

PR is closely related to citizenship; even PR status holders are counted as the final steps of citizenship applicants. However, there is a difference between permanent residency and citizenship.

As a citizen of Canada, you can participate in the democratic process of the Canadian — elections. You can select public representatives to run your province, town, or country. A citizen can get involved in political affairs to run a public office. You can apply for a passport and be allowed to travel everywhere in the country. Canada boasts one of the best ranking passports that helps you land in a hundred countries without a visa. You can travel to 103 countries without a visa, and travel to 35 countries with an arrival visa.

You can live anywhere in the world after getting citizenship; there is no restriction for Canadian citizens to stay in the land to save their citizenship. If convicted of a crime, a Canadian citizen does not lose citizenship; however, a permanent resident (PR status) who commits a serious offense may lose that status.

As a Canadian citizen, you are able to get employment that requires citizenship and security clearance in government sectors. But as a permanent resident, you might find your employment options limited to corporate or private bodies.
