How To Become a Canadian Citizen
There are significant additional benefits extended to Canadian citizens over those given to permanent residents of Canada. The Chaudhary Law Office is pleased to provide service in Citizenship applications. Persons who have obtained their permanent residence and have been residing in Canada for four years in a six-year period are eligible for Canadian citizenship. Applicants are also required to undergo a citizenship test to demonstrate knowledge about Canada, as well as a language test as proof of ability to communicate in either English or French. However, persons under the age of 14 do not need to meet these requirements, and these requirements may be waived for people over the age of 64. At the final stage of the process, applicants will be awarded their citizenship card by a Judge at a special ceremony. There is an ability to request judicial review against a refused citizenship application. This can be exercised only within 30 days of the date of the refused citizenship decision.
Canadian citizens who are refused an application for the granting of a passport or have their passport revoked, require legal representation before an adjudicator who has the authority to reinstate a person’s ability to apply for a passport.
