i have been a Canadian citizen for 11 years.
i landed into Canada using my maiden name, therefore my citizenship and passport were issued with this name. All my other documents have my married name (including my health card).
I need to have my married name in my Canadian passport, however the citizenship card is required as a proof of name but it was issued with my maiden name. i am assuming i need to change my name in my citizen card first, is this correct?
thanks

Hi
i am going to apply Canadian citizenship. And i just got married in December and i also submit spouse visa application for my husband to come in canada. I would like to use my husband last name on my documents.and somebody advise me if you are going to fill citizenship application then you can submit question 3 to request to change name.
Can you please advise how i can change my name? There are four option to give reason why you are changing name so which one is best for me..and should i submit any document to change my name. But my husband don't use his last name on documents. That's why we don't have his last name on marriage certificate.
And i am also little afraid will it effect on our paper work which i have applied for my husband for visa.

Please advise
Thanks in advance
