Permanent residents become eligible to apply for Canadian citizenship after meeting a number of requirements relating to their residency in Canada as well as their knowledge of an official language and of Canada generally.

Once citizenship has been granted, individuals acquire a number of new rights and responsibilities which include the right to apply for a Canadian passport, to vote and to stand for election, as well as mobility rights (the right to leave, enter, and remain in Canada).

For further information about Canadian citizenship, please contact an immigration lawyer at Mamann, Sandaluk & Kingwell LLP, and find out if you qualify to apply for citizenship.
