Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

It is important to have clarification regarding these types of requirements.

You can find some detailed information regarding what qualifies on the CIC Website in the Acceptable language proof to apply for citizenship wizard section.

For additional clarification it states,

You must have successfully finished a secondary or post-secondary program in English or French.

A single course done in English or French does not meet the requirement.

The diploma, certificate or transcript should be in English or French.If it is not in English or French, you must also send a certified English or French translation of the document.

It should clearly show that the program was completed with English or French as the language of instruction.


You may want to use the Acceptable language proof to apply for citizenship wizard for clarification.

If you are in Canada, you may want to contact the Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) Call Centre directly for information specific to your 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.
