Almost Canadian

After two years of dicking around, I finally filed the necessary papers with Citizenship and Immigration Canada.   The form was surprisingly short and the application cost $200… along with the $15 to get two Immigration photos done   ( which have different specifications from passport photos).

The process is going to take a while… and there’s a document called ‘Discover Canada: the Rights and Responsibilities’ which I’m supposed to study about Canadian history, values, rights and responsibilities of citizenship etc.   Then I’ll take a citizenship test and take an oath before a citizenship judge.   If I flunk the test I’ll have an interview with a citizenship judge.   Guess I got a lot of studying to do.

So by this time next year… I really will be Canadian.   Holy cow eh?
