Canadian Government gave 6442 people citizenship that was conducted across 72 special citizenship ceremonies. The Citizenship Week (October 8-14) also marked the 1 year anniversary of Bill C-6, which brought in important changes to the Citizenship Act, helping qualified applicants get citizenship faster.
This year, the Citizenship ceremonies were different and unique, 6 of the newest Canadians took the oath of citizenship harnessed on the EdgeWalk accompanied by Minister Ahmad Hussen. The other ceremonies conducted at the top of the Vancouver Lookout, on October 11, and at the Olympic Stadium in Montreal, on October 12, 2018.
As Citizenship Week was during Women’s History Month, citizenship ceremonies across Canada celebrated the outstanding achievements of women who shaped Canada.
The changes to Bill C-6 came into effect on October 11, 2017 and provided those wanting to meet the requirements. The changes reduced the time permanent residents must be physically present in Canada before applying for citizenship from 4 out of 6 years to 3 out of 5 years.
By the end of October 2018, an estimated 152,000 people will have received Canadian Citizenship since the changes came into effect, an increase of 40% compared to the 108,000 people who obtained citizenship in the same period year before.
The Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) received 242,680 applications; this is double 102,261 applications that were received in the same period previous year.
The permanent residency opens the gate of Citizenship for the applicants willing to come and settle in the country on permanent basis. To become Canadian Citizenship, you have the option to apply for Canada PR through different programs like Express Entry, Provincial Nominee Programs and Family Sponsorship Programs.
