Obtaining a Canada passport: How to become a Canadian citizen?

Canada passport is the sixth strongest global passport. With this passport, one can travel to 188 countries visa-free. An immigrant can apply for Canadian passport, upon meeting certain eligibility criteria. The first criterion is that they should be a permanent resident in Canada. They must have completed at least five years being a permanent resident and must have lived in Canada for at least three years during this period. They must also have paid their taxes on time. Further, they must pass a test on the rights, responsibilities and knowledge of Canada and prove their language skills.

Advantages of becoming a Canadian citizen

A permanent resident enjoys almost all the rights of Canadian citizen. These include free public education and healthcare, right to work and live anywhere in Canada and all civil liberties protected under Canadian law. But there are also some exclusive rights enjoyed by Canadian citizens.

These include:

  1. The right to vote
  2. The right to contest in elections
  3. The children of Canadian citizens will automatically become Canadian citizens.
  4. Once you become a Canadian citizen, you can live anywhere in the world, without losing your citizenship.

Once a permanent resident becomes a citizen, they won’t have to renew their PR cards in every 5-10 years. It means you can travel freely to anywhere in the world and re-enter to Canada more easily.
