Dear All,

I need to enquire about the stupid mistake which I have made in my Citizenship Application. I was under the impression that when you land in Canada you are a landed immigrant until you get your PR card So, when you apply for your Citizenship you mention landing date and also the date when you became a PR holder and every day from landing to get your PR will be counted as 1/2 half day.

So, what I did in my application is that I mentioned in section 7 of the application in 7a I have mentioned the date on which I got my PR card and in section 7b I mentioned the landing date.

I have calculated my physical days in Canada based on above calculation and it comes out to be 1122 but if I had
calculated it correctly i.e. landing date is when I became Permanent Resident then it would be 1128.

Please advise what to do in order to make correction without delaying my application processing. I have not yet received acknowledgement from CIC.

I would appreciate an early reply from you on this specially from PMM and Boy Billy.

Thanks & Regards
M.Sharma

Hello,

I have applied for citizenship in March 2015. I just realise that, I wrote a wrong entry date into residency calculator with my citizenship application for Canada. Although, i have about 1099 days without counting this day. Anyone with this sort of experience? Will appreciate your help.

my application has been returned today saying that i havent attached the old passport with the application which they didnt mention in requirements. My application was submitted on 10 june 2015 under old laws.
Is there anything i can do about this cuz thats unfair i guess and if i submit again, do i have to submit under new laws ?
is it possible to resubmit my aplication with some sort of clarification letter and will they accept it again ?

I think you need to be relaxed as you already have more days than required.

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

We suggest that you contact the Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) Call Centre directly.

Unfortunately, from what some who have recently had their applications returned have posted to the forum here, they have had to resubmit.

You can find some information regarding this in our previous Settlement.Org How does Bill C24 affect me? - Can anyone Help? discussion thread.

However, we suggest that you should contact the Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) Call Centre directly for information and clarification specific to your own situation.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
