Canada Citizenship Test: See If You’re Ready!
The official test, given by Citizenship & Immigration Canada, is made up from a pool of 200 questions. These questions cover the following topics:
- Rights and responsibilities of Canadian citizens
- History of Canada
- Political systems of Canada
- Physical and political geography of Canada
- Questions specific to the applicant’s region (ie, who is your province’s premier?)
The topics listed above serve as a guideline. The test was revised in 2010 and now focuses more heavily on Canadian values like gender equality, democracy, and human rights. Another part of the Canada Citizenship test is an assessment of your language ability. To pass the test you will have to be able to understand and communicate simple statements and information to CIC (Citizenship and Immigration Canada) staff, in either English or French.
Now, more than ever, immigrants are required to memorize more information to pass the test! All of the possible 200 questions are derived from the Discover Canada The Rights and Responsibilities of Citizenship study guide.
