In Canada, you need to be here for 5 years to get the citizenship of the country. Almost 15,000 Indians applied for citizenship from the time of January 2018-October 2018. This number was 9,992 citizens getting citizenship during the time January 2017-October 2017. This is an increase of 50% in the citizenship statistics for the same period. You have to be there in Canada for at least 3 years in 5 years to get the citizenship of this country.
You must also have filed the taxes in these 3 years for you to be able to get the citizenship.
