COVID-19 updates Canadian Citizenship Test and Citizenship Ceremonies

Where can you take your Citizenship Ceremony?

Though all in-person citizenship ceremonies are cancelled, some applicants will be invited to attend their citizenship oath ceremony online, over Zoom. Please wait for the IRCC to contact you.

IRCC will send an invitation letter that will include the date, time, Zoom link and log-in instructions.

You will be required to be physically present in Canada to receive your oath of citizenship.

The IRCC will need you to confirm your location before you can participate in the ceremony.

Is it possible to take the Canadian Citizenship Test?

At this time, all citizenship tests and retests are cancelled until further notice.

The government enforced restrictions due to COVID-19 has significantly slowed the process of becoming a naturalized citizen.

Becoming a Canadian citizen is a meaningful and important milestone in many people’s lives. If you have made it as far as becoming a permanent resident, which takes at least 5 years, then you are so close to the finish line. But the finish line has vanished from sight since the pandemic hit. Many people are feeling stress and worry as a result.

There are so many benefits to becoming a Canadian citizen that the uncertainty of not knowing when that dream can be realized can have negative impacts on one’s mental and emotional well being.

What can you do while you wait for test centres to reopen?

In the meantime, while you wait for test centres to open up again, we recommend that you take control where you can. Make sure that you are well prepared for your test.

1) Documents

Have all your documents ready that you need to bring for your test. Keep them filed in a safe place. These documents include your Notice to Appear, your Permanent Resident card and two pieces of personal ID. You can view this page for the complete list of required documents.

2) Emotional wellbeing

The uncertainty of not knowing when you will be able to take your Canadian Citizenship Test can cause a lot of stress and anxiety. We recommend that you try practicing mindfulness meditation to help you stay calm, focused and centred. It is scientifically proven to work. Mindfulness meditation, combined with following a daily routine, will create a structure to your day, can give you a sense of control and will have positive impacts on your mental and emotional wellbeing. ❤

3) Study

Study hard for your Canadian Citizenship Test. After you’ve done that, study some more. You can’t be too prepared for your test. Take practice tests from a reputable online source which will give you the peace of mind you need to pass your test with confidence and ease.
