Citizenship

Permanent Residency and Citizenship

Obtaining your Permanent Residency permit and gaining your citizenship is the final stage of your immigration process. And this is the stage we want our clients to attain.


Canadian Permanent Resident Card

Carved in a wallet-sized shape, this is the official proof of your status after your Canadian Permanent Residency application has been approved. It contains your personal details like your photography, physical descriptions, and your signature. This special card must be presented at any point of returning to Canada after you have traveled. In a situation whereby you do not have it, you can apply for Temporary Travel Documents. It’s usually renewed every 5 years’ interval.

At CanadaIMS, we can help you apply for your permanent resident status. Trust our experienced team of immigration consultants to fully guide you through the process.


Citizenship

In Canada, you can either acquire your citizenship either by naturalization or by birth. Therefore, applicants who immigrated to Canada and have finally fulfilled all the required criteria are welcome to apply by naturalization. Getting your citizenship as an immigrant is the last proof that you have fully integrated with the Canadian system. With your status, you have the right to vote and be voted for, endless employment and academic opportunities.

However, in a situation whereby you reside outside of Canada but you are already a citizen due to birth or parents being citizens, we can still help you to move into Canada when you are ready.


Who Is Eligible to Apply?

You can apply for Canadian citizenship if:

  • You possess a Permanent Resident permit or card
  • You have proof of language proficiency
  • You have a proper tax record
  • You have resided in Canada for 3 years within the past 5 years of when you applied
  • Successfully passed the citizenship test
