Apply for Canadian Citizenship

Benefits of the Canadian Citizenship

Canadian citizenship has many beautiful benefits. As a Canadian citizen, you can participate in politics. It doesn't mean running for an office only! Now you may participate in voting and express your views on how the country should develop by giving your preferred party.

Becoming a Canadian citizen also entitles you to apply for jobs which require higher security clearance - well-paying government jobs, including federal government positions.

Canada allows dual and multiple citizenships. You do not have to renounce the citizenship of your country of origin, you can actually keep it and enjoy both citizenships!

Canadian citizens cannot be recognized admissible and, therefore, cannot be deported from the country. In our practice, we have seen permanent residents who have lived in Canada for 25 years come to us because they were recognized inadmissible and a deportation process was started.

Finally, Canadian passport provides you with visa-free or visa-on-arrival access to 183 countries and territories, putting it in the world's Top-10 in terms of travel freedom.
