June 2014, 20
EMAIL  Print A+

Chris Alexander, Citizenship and Immigration Canada Minister, has proclaimed that changes proposed to the Citizenship Act have gone through final passage and acquired Royal Assent.

It is expected that these amendments will reinforce the rules and regulations concerned with citizenship access, to make sure that new citizens are prepared well to take part and to assimilate into Canadian society.    

The key reforms include minimizing the decision-making process of Canada’s citizenship program from three steps to one step. It is anticipated that this reform will help in bringing down the average processing time of citizenship applications to less than one year and minimizing current backlog by over 80% by the period of 2015–2016.

The changes made to the Citizenship Act clearly specify that, an applicant should be physically present in Canada for residence period to be eligible for citizenship. The aspirants are required to satisfy language requirements and must qualify a knowledge test

Other reforms also include avoiding citizenship fraud along with promoting and protecting the country’s values and interests.

Chris Alexander said that it is a great honor for the government to declare that the initial inclusive amendment to the Citizenship Act is now made law. Further, the citizenship value will be strengthened and new citizens can easily obtain citizenship.

He added that Canadian citizenship is having great value around the world and with these new amendments the government guarantees that this value remains same.
