Hello friends I am preparing to apply for the citizenship.
In form CIT 0002 I have some doubts
1-let say in question 1b-abt special needs--I selected NO...so shd I put not applicable in the box of yes or it is understood that if no then not to worry abt the empty box..AS I read somewhere u should not keep any empty boxes in the form to prevent misunderstanding.

2-question 7-A.....about the language evidenc I have attended ESL classes and have a certificate and attendance letter...so I will select evidence of achieving CLB ..However,I should not select the option above CLB...that is diploma,certificate or transcript one...there no relation between clb classes and this right?

3-question 9-C...about Qubec...I am an Ontario residence so shd I right not applicable and not to select any of the options that is YES or NO..or I shd select NO?
why I thought NOT APPLICABLE as this doesn't apply to me.

appreciate your time and effort

Hello Vishal,


Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

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

Regarding your first question,


In form CIT 0002 I have some doubts
1-let say in question 1b-abt special needs--I selected NO...so shd I put not applicable in the box of yes or it is understood that if no then not to worry abt the empty box..AS I read somewhere u should not keep any empty boxes in the form to prevent misunderstanding.



You can find some information in the reminders section of the Application for Canadian citizenship under subsection 5(1) – Adults 18 years of age and older (CIT 0002)instruction guide on the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) website.


Here is an excerpt,


Here are some reminders to avoid your application being returned to you:


-You have answered all questions on the form or wrote “N/A” (Not applicable) for any question or section that is not applicable to you.



Regarding your second question,


2-question 7-A.....about the language evidenc I have attended ESL classes and have a certificate and attendance letter...so I will select evidence of achieving CLB ..However,I should not select the option above CLB...that is diploma,certificate or transcript one...there no relation between clb classes and this right?


You can find detailed information regarding the acceptable type of acceptable language proof in the Application for Canadian citizenship under subsection 5(1) – Adults 18 years of age and older (CIT 0002) Instruction Guide in the Language Proof if you are 18-64 years of age section.

Here is an excerpt,

wrote:
Proof of achieving Canadian Language Benchmark/Niveaux de compétence linguistique canadiens(CLB/NCLC) level 4 or higher in speaking and listening skills through certain government-funded language training programs includes:


Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada or Cours de Langue pour Immigrants au Canada (LINC or CLIC):
  • When applying, be sure to check the box if you successfully completed the LINC or CLIC course at CLB 4/NCLC 4 or higher from January 1st 2008 to October 31st, 2012 and provide a copy of the certificate if available. If you do not have a copy of your certificate, please check the box and your participation will be validated in our system.

If you successfully completed the LINC or CLIC course since November 1st, 2012, a certificate will have been provided to you at the time of your successful completion of the course. A copy of this certificate is required as acceptable proof that you meet the language requirements for citizenship purposes.


Regarding your third question,

3-question 9-C...about Qubec...I am an Ontario residence so shd I right not applicable and not to select any of the options that is YES or NO..or I shd select NO?
why I thought NOT APPLICABLE as this doesn't apply to me.


As you may have noticed, 9C is about "Quebec's Permanent List of Electors". The Application for Canadian citizenship under subsection 5(1) – Adults 18 years of age and older (CIT 0002) Instruction Guide states that if you reside in Quebec, you should indicate whether you authorize IRCC to provide your name and other details to the Chief Electoral Officer of Quebec.

As stated in the reminders section, you should write “N/A” (Not applicable) for any question or section that is not applicable to you.

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.

Dear Sir / Madam,
I got admission from Concordia University and I moved from Toronto to Montreal in September 1, 2016 but based on my residential and mailing address are still from Toronto.
In the other words, my virtual residential and mailing address which is related to my OHIP card and my Driver License Card are from Toronto and my real residential address from September 1, 2016 till now is in Montreal.
Because I am Ontario Resident and I live in Montreal as student, how can I fill out the citizenship forms? I mean, I need to use the real address in Montreal while my OHIP and driving license card have different address form Toronto on them.
Best Regards,
Ray
