Hi!

My family and I are permanent residents having the time required to become citizens. Unfortunately, the pandemic hit while I was in the process of compiling our papers, I was hoping someone can help with the following questions:

- My wife has started university this year and has not completed studies yet. Would proof of ongoing studies be sufficient or must she complete?
- In the event where a married couple applies ( together with their children) - do both parents need to provide sufficient English skills, or is sufficient for just one of them? (As I have credentials)
- My wife has enrolled for Celpip test but as of the moment it is cancelled until further notice. Is there an online option to be tested for credentials?

Kind regards,
Yariv

1. She doesn't have to prove ongoing studies, but if she wishes to use her studies as proof of English, she probably needs completion.
2. Both require proof of language.
3. No, there is no on line tests available.

Hi all,
I was born in the US, and grew up in Canada from the age of 2 years old. I became a permanent resident through my mother, in 1969 but never got my citizenship. I married a Canadian citizen in 1987, but now we live in the US because I took a job in 2006 and moved there.
I would like to get my Canadian citizenship but not sure where I fall in terms of eligibility. Having lived in Canada 42 years, do I still qualify now that I live in the US for the last 12 years? My husband is Canadian and so are my sons. If anyone has similar situations or know how I can do this, please let me know.
