Canadian Citizenship Test Information: http://www.canadianimmigration.co/cit...

Once you have applied for Canadian citizenship, you will have to take the Canadian citizenship test. This video describes the details and requirements.

If you have met the basic requirements for citizenship, and you are between the ages of 18 and 54, then you are required to take the Canadian citizenship test. After applying, Citizenship and Immigration Canada will notify you that they have received your citizenship application, and that they have begun processing. They will send a copy of the study guide for you to carefully read. You will be tested on the information.

A notice will be sent to you that will indicate the time and date for your test.

When you attend the test, you will need to bring all the original documents of which you had provided photocopies with your application (such as personal identification and immigration documents), as well your passport or any travel documents that pertain to the four years prior to filling out your application.

The test is typically written, but it is possible to be called in for an interview with a citizenship judge. Whether it is an oral or written test is decided based on details in your application. For instance, you would be called in for an oral test if you had difficulty reading or writing in either English or French.

The Canadian citizenship test evaluates you on two areas:

1. Your knowledge of Canada

Some topics that the test will cover are:

- the right to run for elected office
- the right to vote
- election procedures
- a citizen's rights and responsibilities
- social and cultural history and symbols of Canada
- the political history of Canada (including the political system and institutions)
- the physical and political geography of Canada
