Canadian Citizenship – Making it official

I always said that I’d apply for Canadian Citizenship as soon as I became eligible. Now I have to admit that I’ve been procrastinating. Perhaps it’s thinking of all the forms I will have to fill out; or maybe it’s knowing the current wait time is 25 months which discourages me. Today I’ve decided to document my journey to Canadian Citizenship. I think this will help me stay motivated to apply sooner rather than later. 

Though I believe I’m eligible, I have to start by confirming that I can indeed apply already. Fortunately, the Citizenship and Immigration Canada website is very well-organized and easy to read.

I will keep you posted on my progress. On my next post I will explain in detail what makes you eligible; I will also determine whether I’m ready to start the process and what documents I will need to gather to support my application. 

Stay tuned for more information soon!


About Diana Massimi

As a newcomer in Canada, I've had some really great experiences. Every day, I continue to learn and adapt to my new country. As I've just passed the three year mark as a permanent resident, I'll soon be applying for citizenship. It's an exciting step to take and I'm looking forward to being "officially" Canadian. This blog is to share what I've learned so far and my everyday experiences and feelings being a newcomer to this country. More than anything I'll be looking forward to hearing from other newcomers and exchanging impressions and anecdotes about our new life in Canada. Feel free to share and ask questions, I'm also always happy to help a fellow newcomer!
