How to get there


This workshop addresses the new changes to Canadian citizenship law. Bill C-24, the Strengthening Canadian Citizenship Act, which was passed in June 2014, contains a variety of changes which will dramatically reshape citizenship in Canada. Some of the provisions already came into effect on August 1, 2014, while other provisions will come into force later (likely by May 2015).

The workshop explains these changes, the steps to follow, and what to include to apply for citizenship. The presenters also explain what to expect after the application is submitted and advise on potential pitfalls, including misrepresentation, cessation, and vacation.

This workshop will also highlight who will be most impacted by these changes and provide practical tips for completing citizenship applications.
