Check if you are eligible to apply for citizenship

Answer some questions to help you find out if you are ready to apply for Canadian citizenship. These questions are for adults (age 18 and over) who want to apply for citizenship. Minors (under age 18) have some different requirements.

These questions are based on the legal requirements for a Canadian citizenship application. The results are not legal advice, they will not be part of your formal application.

Have you been a permanent resident, and physically been in Canada for at least 3 of the last 5 years (1095 days)?

  • Yes
  • No
