Hello,

Thank you for sharing your question with us.

You can find some information on our CitizenshipCounts.ca website here:



STEP 8 - PREPARE FOR THE RESIDENCE QUESTIONNAIRE

After submitting your citizenship application, you might be asked to fill out a residence questionnaire (RQ). Not everyone gets asked to fill out an RQ. The RQ helps CIC determine whether or not you have lived in Canada for 4 of the 6 years before you applied for citizenship.

If you get asked to fill out an RQ, you will be asked to submit documents showing that you fulfilled the residency requirements. These documents might include things like travel documents and records, bills, school records, leases or pay stubs...etc. You can prepare for this in advance by collecting as much information about your stay in Canada as you can.


Note that if you get asked to fill out an RQ, your citizenship application is considered a "Non-Routine Citizenship Application" and may be delayed.



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.

Hello Anna,
Thanks for for your reply if someone has been asked to write the Citizenship test without asking about RQ before the test is there a possibility RQ will be asked after the test is done successfully I mean the CIC is O.K with everything in the application process before asking to write the test.Please reply to my query.

1. After the test you will be interviewed by a Citizenship officer, who will review your passport(s) and stamps. If s/he has any doubts about your residency, you will receive a Residency Questionnaire.
