Status Renewal & Citizenship

Canada’s citizenship law has witnessed changes over the past few years. Before May 2015, to qualify for Canadian Citizenship, a Permanent Resident must have physically lived inside Canada for no less than 1095 days within a four year period. The law then changed to require Permanent residents to be in Canada for 1460 days within a 6 year period. In 2016 the law was repealed to bring citizenship rules back to their former state of requiring a Permanent Resident to have accumulated 1095 within a five year period (preceding the date they apply). 

Canada has never tolerated fraud in Citizenship applications. The law as it stands today and in the past created powerful tools for the Minister to use if an applicant was found guilty of forging residence in Canada. This red line will never be tolerated in Canada, be it with the former, current or any successor government.
