Canada is 150!
The BEST Year to become a Citizen!
If you are planning to apply for Canadian Citizenship, begin by taking a preparation class and then apply. There is only a short time between applying and writing the test.
St. Louis’ Citizenship Preparation program covers three key components in 9 sessions:
- Citizenship test topics are covered, including Geography, History, Government, Voting, Rights & Responsibilities
- Covers all test content and provides strategies to succeed!
- Citizenship practices test opportunities. Students who took the class and wrote the test received a 90% pass rate!
Classes are offered at St. Louis – St. Mary’s Campus:
- Tuesday evenings, 6:30pm – 9:30pm (Sept 12, 2017 to June 19, 2018)
- Saturday mornings, 9:00am-12:00pm (Sept 16, 2017 to June 16, 2018)
NOTE: To be eligible to take the Canadian Citizenship test, you must have a CLB level 4 in listening and speaking. For the greatest success and best use of your time, it is strongly recommended that you have CLB 4 before taking the Citizenship preparation course. We can provide proof of CLB 4 completion to St. Louis LINC or ESL students. If you already have CLB4 and were not a student with us, and still need a language test, look at CELPIP website for more details.
Becoming a Canadian citizen has great benefits and responsibilities. If you have lived here for a couple of years, you will know by now the importance Canada places on education, health, religious freedoms, our natural resources and most importantly respect for each other. Like every country, these values have evolved from overcoming many challenges and growing pains. Learn more about what it means to be a Canadian Citizen.
