Let’s prepare for and

CE THE CANADIAN
CITIZENSHIP TEST

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT:
Because of COVID-19, the federal government has announced a reorganization of the citizenship testing process.  It is expected that testing will begin again as soon as social distancing measures are in place.  However, your preparation for your test will remain the same.

YOUR JOURNEY TOWARDS CANADIAN CITIZENSHIP

There are so many newcomers whose dream is to become a Canadian citizen. After years of settlement issues, becoming comfortable in a new culture and community, making new friends, and investing many hours of English language training and practice, are you now ready to take that final step of preparing for your citizenship test? Perhaps you are ready but because of delays, you simply need a refresher course.

What you must know about Canada for your citizenship test is based on the federal government (Ottawa) study guide: “Discover Canada: the Rights and Responsibilities of Citizenship.” ( Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada).

As a student of this guide, you can study it yourself; you can take advantage of multiple internet resources which will assist your work; there are community organizations which provide free citizenship sessions. Very simply, you can do it yourself. Or, there is an option of my tutoring assistance.
