Canada accepts almost double the number of people as its citizens in March 2014

new citizens of Canada
Around 33,700 people from 199 nations have become the citizens of Canada at ceremonies of citizenship that were held all over Canada in March 2014. This number is about 2 times the number that was recorded in March 2013, when 17,089 people had been granted citizenship.

The new citizens of Canada have been received at 312 ceremonies of citizenship that were held all over the country.

This high rise in the number of citizens is indicative of the fact that a lot of amendments and enhancements have been made to the immigration system over the previous year, which has resulted in the present system that is being found to be more capable than the previous one. The decrease in the backlog has come about as a result of the enhancements made to the system, thus rendering help to more number of people to turn their dreams into reality. The Canadian government has also put forward some changes in Bill C-24, the ‘Strengthening Canadian Citizenship Act’. This would decrease the wait times by an efficient process of decision-making, for citizenship. It is anticipated that these changes would bring down the average time required to process the applications of citizenship to under 1year and as a consequence, the present backlog would be reduced by more than 80 % by 2015-2016.
