During Canadian #CitizenshipWeek (May 23–29, 2022), let’s celebrate what it means to become a citizen. For newcomers, it’s an important step in their immigration journey. Making the decision to apply for citizenship can be exciting, but also emotional and even overwhelming. The process of applying for citizenship isn’t easy either. There are application forms, fees, a test and an interview. Then, only after months of planning, studying and waiting will you be able to take your oath of citizenship. Check out our detailed article on how to become a Canadian citizen here: www.dcrs.ca/are-you-a-permanent-resident-planning-to-apply-for-canadian-citizenship/ #MyCitizenship #ImmigrationMatters ...
