Did you know: Canadian Citizenship

***The information in this post may be out of date. For updated information about Canadian citizenship requirements, please click here*** 

Did you know: You will be eligible for Canadian Citizenship after 1095 days (3 years) of physical residence in Canada within the first 4 years, following your landing date at a Canadian point of entry. You are free to leave or re-enter Canada during this time.

If you plan to leave Canada once or many times for personal reasons during the first 3 years:

  • Official landing date: Jan 1,2011 (example)
  • Official application date for citizenship application: Jan 1, 2014 (if no days are spent outside Canada)

If you plan to be outside Canada for a total of 30 days then:

  • Official landing date: Jan 1,2011 (example)
  • Official application date for citizenship application becomes: Jan 31, 2014

Or if you plan to be outside Canada for a total of 45 days then:

  • Official landing date: Jan 1,2011 (example)
  • Official application date for citizenship application becomes: Feb 15, 2014

In other words, each day spent outside Canada (max of 365 days) must be added to the time spent physically in Canada. Note that Canada accepts and recognizes dual citizenship.

Sincerely,

The Canadim Team!
