Subject: Urgent Citizenship question to Sharon & Roy
  Hi Sharon & Roy,

Pls help me on a few questions about a PR applying for citizenship. This is not covered by http://www.cic.gc.ca.

If PR meets the rules (3 yrs in Canada @ 2 yrs as PR etc) & applies for citizenship, the steps are :
1. He applies to CIC
2. CIC office processes it
3. CIC asks him to attend interview to review docs & appear for test
4. CIC asks him to appear for a citizenship ceremony.

Questions are :-

Q1) What happens if he´s offered a job abroad after sending the application? Will he have to stay in Canada until his citizenship ceremony?

Q2) He plans to work abroad for a few years after submitting his application, returning for the interview (& going abroad again) & again returning for the ceremony.

Could this affect how CIC view his citizenship application? Or is the CIC likely to be indifferent wrt whether he stays in Canada or works abroad?

Q3) He will maintain his house in Canada throughout, where all correspondence sent to him will be forwarded to his overseas address. In such a case, after submitting his applicaiton, will he even need to inform CIC that he´s working abroad (until specifically asked), given that his intention is to return to Canada in a couple of years anyway?

#3 is not necessary true that an interview is required it is only when there is some concern that an interview is called but there is a test.

If you meet the residency requirements to apply you also have to meet them as per IRPA in any five year period.

Q1 So take the job.
Q2 If the applicant can maintain 730 days our of ANY five year period go for it!
Q3 No not unless they stop him/her entering and there are questions as to maintaining the 730 day process.

Thanks Roy,

You say "If you meet residency requirements to apply you also ´HAVE TO MEET THEM AS PER IRPA" in any 5 yr period.

Just wondering why you mentioned the IRPA (i.e are there any extra requirements for IRPA).

I´m assuming not, since I´ll be meeting the 2 out of 5 yrs anyway. I´ll apply after 3 yrs, then go abroad, & even if they take 2 yrs to process, working back from date of grant of citizenship (3 + 2 years), I´ll have spent 3 out of the 5 yrs in Canada.

Cheers

Well for one thing it is not 2 years out of five years residency requirement.

It is 730 days (which some relate to two years 365x2=730) out of ANY five year period! 730 days! Then when one views the Citizenship Act which is different then the Immigration Act or IRPA the waiting time is in years. When you calculate they switch it back to days.
