Citizenship involves people working together to create a positive difference in the society in which they live –
locally, nationally, and worldwide. Citizenship is obtained by completing the legal criteria of a national,
state, or municipal authority. Prior to 1947, both Canadians born in Canada and naturalized immigrants were
considered British subjects. The Canadian Citizenship Act went into effect on January 1, 1947. It was the first
nationality law that defined persons as Canadians. Today, Citizenship is available to all landed permanent
residents of Canada, regardless of their age. Individuals must meet the certain criteria in order to become
citizens of Canada. Canada does not force you to choose between being a Canadian citizen or a citizen of your
native country. Depending on your place of origin, you may or may not be required to make that decision.
