Taking A Canadian Citizenship Test in 2024

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 started testing this process beginning in 2020, starting with a small group (roughly 5,000 people) to try it first that already had the in-person citizenship test scheduled before the pandemic that might’ve been canceled!

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.

Who Can Take The Citizenship Test?

The citizenship test is available to people who:

What Is On The Test?

Is The Test Open Book?

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

I got my US L1 Visa through them, pretty smooth process. We weren’t sure they’d take our case as we had some issues with retrieving some documents, but they worked with us on getting everything we needed. Recommend.

Allow me to express that our case proved to be more complex than initially anticipated. However, Aisha and Reena provided unwavering support throughout the entire process. At each juncture, they offered clear guidance on necessary actions, guiding us through the intricacies we couldn’t navigate independently. While the procedure proved more intricate than expected, our legal team maintained close communication, ensuring we were well-informed and adequately prepared. Confronted with challenges, they approached them with a positive attitude, instilling confidence through their professionalism and competence. I wholeheartedly recommend their services. While moments of stress were inevitable, their assurance and ability to convey that confidence were instrumental. Reflecting on the experience, I am certain we would not have succeeded without their assistance, or at the very least, the journey would have been significantly prolonged.
