Hey, I am 16 years old and I have got the Permanent Resident Card.

I was wondering if I stayed in Canada for 4 years from now onward, will I become a Canadian Citizenship or do I have to stay the 4 whole years after my 18th birthday keeping in mind that no adults (parents or a guardian) will be staying with me except my 20 years old sister.

So briefly, my question is WIll those 2 years count or not?

1. Yes, you can apply for citizenship after you meet the requirements. The years prior to age 18 count as well.
