Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

You can find detailed information regarding applying for Canadian Citizenship in our Settlement.Org article, How do I apply for Canadian Citizenship?


Here is an excerpt on the process:
Application Process
  • Download and fill out the forms in the Canadian Citizen Application Package for both you and your children.
  • Include all supporting documents.
  • Pay the application fee.
  • Mail your application to the Centralized Intake Office (CIO) in Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada.
[...]

If your application is accepted you have to write a citizenship test. Children under 18 years of age and persons 54 and over do not have to write the citizenship test. Find out more in How can I prepare for the citizenship test?


According to the IRCC article about the online citizenship test, if you are invited to take an online test, you have 21 days from the date of the invitation to take the test. If you need an extension, email the office that sent you the test invitation with your explanation. IRCC officers give extensions on a case-by-case basis.


We hope this information is helpful. Please feel free to follow up with us if you have any further questions.


Sincerely,

Your Settlement.Org Team

Secondly,we are family of 4 people
