How to Become a Canadian Citizen
If you are moving to Canada with the intention of living there for long time, you probably want to know how to become a Canadian citizen. Your eligibility to be a Canadian citizen depends on the situation in which you find, for example:
- A Canada permanent resident applying for:
Child under 18 years old.
- People with old Canadian citizenship and who wish to regain citizenship (includes members of the Canadian Armed Forces-CAF, ex-members or current members).
- If you are Canadian and want to apply for Canadian citizenship for adopted children in another country.
- Ex-members or current members of the Canadian Armed Forces who join the fast-track process.
Spouses of Canadian citizens
Marrying a Canadian citizen will not guarantee that you automatically become a citizen. You do not need to meet any special requirements if you are married to a Canadian citizen, you only need to meet the same requirements as other adults.
