To be able to apply for Canadian citizenship, the following conditions must be met:

1.     You must be a PR, fulfilled all conditions related to PR, you must not be under review by immigration canada, or have a removal order.

2.     Physically present in Canada for at least 1095 days (3 years) in Canada within the last five years when you apply

4.     Able to speak and listen in either French or English

5.     Pass the test to meet knowledge requirement

6.     Take an oath

If you are under the age of 18, you are not required to take the knowledge test and will be Canadian citizens if your parent has passed. Those who are 55 and older can be granted citizenship without undergoing the knowledge and language requirements. Prior to 2017 the Citizenship Act did not require those aged 65 and older to undergo the language and knowledge requirements.

Citizenship can be revoked if you have obtained citizenship through false representation, fraud, or knowingly hid information on an immigration or citizenship application.
