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?
