Taking A Canadian Citizenship Test in 2022

By Sierra November 30, 2020 (Updated December 20, 2021) 2 min. read

In March 2020, the IRCC suspended Canadian citizenship tests due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. With safeguards in place to ensure proper identification, the IRCC has launched a new virtual option for those taking Canadian citizenship tests.

The IRCC has been testing this process over the last few months starting with a small group (roughly 5,000 people) to try it first that already had the in-person citizenship test scheduled prior to the pandemic that might’ve been canceled! All in-person tests and interviews are still canceled, and you must first receive an invite from the IRCC in order to take the citizenship test.

What To Expect During Your Online Citizenship Test

Before the test, those participants will be asked to confirm their identity through personal information, and they will have to take a photo of themselves and their ID documents with a webcam before the test can begin. The online platform will continuously take photos of participants during the test which is a process that has been used to ensure the integrity of other tests that moved online due to the pandemic, such as bar exams or admission tests.

The IRCC will be notifying those invited to take the online test by email.

What If I Don’t Want To Take The Test Online?

You are more than welcome to wait to take the citizenship test in-person but there is no set date when that will be an available option!

Who Can Take The Citizenship Test?

The citizenship test is available to people who:

What Is On The Test?

You will be asked 20 questions (must be completed in 30 minutes) about the rights and responsibilities of Canadians and Canada’s:

Is The Test Open Book?

Unfortunately no, the Canadian citizenship test is NOT open book and you are expected to study on your own prior to testing! The IRCC will provide you with a complete question and answer guide when beginning the process.

When you get the opportunity to go to the US for work from abroad, then I would say VisaPlace would be your best option to get all your documents in place. My 5 star feedback is based on the help I received from Danielle Grbic as she was really professional, I would straight away ask for Danielle to be in charge of your process. From the time that Danielle took over my case I felt confident that it will go well and at the end it went smoother than expected. On my own I would never have been able to get this internal work transfer done as a L1 visa and was best for the professionals to take charge. After arriving in the US, Danielle was still happy to assist with documents and advise. A huge thanks to Danielle and VisaPlace

I spoke with Lilly last week and she’s incredible. Very informative and you can tell she definably cares about her job. She wasn’t pushy at all and she’s there to help you figure out if this service is right for you. I’d recommend contacting VisaPlace if you’re thinkin of traveling internationally and you have questions about the different types of permits.

I had a great experience with Andrew Diamond from The Visa Place. Andrew was very knowledgable and helped us every step of the way. When we had a discrepancy with my spouse’s Visa Andrew helped us navigate the system in the USA. He even offered to speak directly to the customs and border control officer to help us iron out the situation. Overall the experience was very good and smooth. I highly recommend Andrew and his services at The Visa Place.

Great firm. They helped me with my visa at a reasonable cost. They were very responsive and most importantly compassionate about my situation. I have no hesitation to recommend them to others

Extremely satisfied with the professionalism, expertise, efficiency, speed and thoroughness at which my file was managed. Fadi & Danielle are true class acts! Their response times were fantastic (especially during a high-stress period), their quality of work was phenomenal, and their willingness to go the extra mile (without hidden costs, no less!) to prepare me for my work permit interview was unmatched. I strongly recommend VisaPlace to anyone seeking legal counsel as it relates to cross-border services. Highest Regards, Krista
