Become a Citizen!

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.
