Canadian Citizenship

Canadian Citizenship requirements have been changed as of October 11, 2017. The following amendments have been made:

  • Required physical presence in Canada reduced to 3 out of 5 years
  • Days spent in Canada before becoming a permanent resident, within 5 years of applying for citizenship, count as half days (up to 365 days) towards physical presence requirements
  • Age range for language and knowledge requirements reduced to 18-54 years old
  • Time required for applicants to file income taxes before applying for citizenship is reduced to 3 out of 5 year

H & G will help you find out if you can become a Canadian Citizen under the new rules. Physical presence in Canada is reduced to three years out of five years and your previous residence in Canada will count towards residency requirements which many of you may be benefited from these changes. We can gladly help you to become a Canadian Citizen.
