Benefits of Canadian Citizenship
For many, citizenship is a kind of insurance policy. In addition to the benefits of citizenship that enhance your feeling of membership in the Canadian community, such as the right to vote and to carry a Canadian passport, citizenship gives you the right to remain in Canada or, should you choose to leave it for a time, to return any time in the future. If you have secured citizenship legitimately and have not misrepresented your circumstances, citizenship is insurance against deportation and can give you the means to sponsor your family to join you in Canada.
To obtain permanent residency, you must meet strict criteria, but, even if you do so, there is no guarantee you will retain it indefinitely. Some people believe permanent resident status is like citizenship, but in fact it is revocable in certain circumstances. To ensure that you have the possibility of remaining in Canada indefinitely, or to leave Canada and have the right to return whenever you like, you should apply for citizenship. We can help you to do that.
