Do I become a Canadian citizen when I marry a Canadian?

No. Marrying a Canadian citizen does not give you Canadian citizenship. If you want to become a
Canadian citizen, you must follow the same steps as everyone else. There is not a special
process for spouses of Canadian citizens.

• You must first be sponsored by your spouse to become a permanent resident of Canada.
There are several requirements to determine:
o Your spouse’s eligibility to become a sponsor.
o Your eligibility to be sponsored for permanent residency.

• After becoming a permanent resident, you must also meet several requirements to apply for
Canadian citizenship such as:
o Be a permanent resident
o Have lived in Canada for 3 out of the last 5 years
o Have filed your taxes, if you need to
o Pass a citizenship test
o Prove your language skills
