Canadian Citizenship Certificate
If you are a Canadian Citizen but were not born in Canada, the only way you can prove your citizenship is by possessing a Canadian Citizenship Certificate. If you became a citizen by applying for citizenship (you “naturalized”), then you were issued this certificate when you swore the oath. (Before 2012, you would have been issued a wallet-sized card.) If you were born outside of Canada to a Canadian citizen, you need to apply for your certificate.
You need your Citizenship Certificate to get or renew your passport. You may also need it to
- renew your driver’s license
- renew your health card
- enrol in school/college/university
- begin a new job.
- Replacement Canadian Citizenship Certificate
- Application reviewed for completeness and filed with IRCC (formerly CIC)
- Supervision by a Registered Canadian Immigration Consultant (RCIC)
