All applicants who meet the eligibility requirements, pass the examination and interview, and pass the French and English language skills exams are eligible for Canadian citizenship.

Once you apply for Canadian citizenship, you will reap the rewards. You gain access to a large number of well-paying work opportunities. You may participate in civic events, vote, and run for office as a citizen.

You can fly to several countries without a visa if you have a Canadian passport. It becomes easier to obtain a visa if one is even needed. If their people are in trouble abroad, the Canadian embassies will help and assist them as long as they have their passports with them.

Furthermore, if you become a Canadian citizen and your children are born in Canada, they automatically become Canadian citizens.

You will completely engage, contribute, and exercise your rights in Canadian society once you become a citizen.
