Canadian Citizenship after Green Card

Asked by: 1871 views , ,


I have a question about dual-citizenship.  I am from India, and I first obtained permanent residence in Canada.  Next, I received a US Green Card.  I’m interested in applying for Canadian citizenship.  Is that possible?  If so, will I be able to apply for US citizenship afterward?

Thanks for your help,

    As long as you meet the residency obligation for Canadian citizenship (i.e. you must have lived in Canada for at least three years (1,095 days) out of the four years immediately before you apply for citizenship), you may do so.

    Similary, you must actually be in the U.S. for 913 days during the five year period counting back from the day your file for naturalization.

    If my canadian citizenship is already in progress and i get US GC through my husband before my oath date……does it effect my canadian citzenship eligibility even if i meet the residency criterion of being in canada 2 years out of 5 at the time of oath.
