I have worked and resided in Canada for nearly six years. Initially I was residing in Canada on a Work Permit. My application for Permanent Residency application took a rather long time and was received in Oct, 2014. Do I have to wait until 4 years from that date to apply for Citizenship?

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

We can appreciate that you would be interested in this type of information.

According to the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) website in the Physical Presence Calculator section, only the days you were physically present in Canada after you became a permanent resident can be counted.

You can find some additional information in our Settlement.Org How do I apply for Canadian Citizenship? article.

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.
