Canada offers one of the most open citizenship policies in the world. As such, hundreds of thousands of people become eligible for Canadian citizenship each year.


There are many benefits to becoming a Canadian citizen including the right to settle permanently in one of the world's most prosperous countries, participate in the country's democracy, and possess one of the world's strongest passports.

Am I eligible for Canadian citizenship?

To become a Canadian citizen, most applicants must:

  • Be a permanent resident

  • Meet Canada's physical presence requirements (lived in Canada 3 out of the 5 last years - 1095 days)

  • Have filed your taxes (if necessary)

  • Pass a Canadian citizenship test (if you are between the ages of 18-54)

  • Prove your language skills (if you are between the ages of 18-54)

After submitting your citizenship application, Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) will check to verify that the applicnat is not prohibited from applying, has met residency requirements, and not have a criminal history considered prohibitive to becoming a citizen.

Contact Lumen Immigration for more information about Canadian citizenship or assistance applying for citizenship.
