Canadians are proud of their citizenship; the status, rights, and freedoms that it provides.
Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) is the federal department that manages Canadian citizenship, both for those applying for citizenship and for current Canadian citizens. Approximately 260,000 people became citizens of Canada in 2006, which represents 85 per cent of eligible Canadian immigrants. These new Canadians have taken loyalty oaths pledging their commitment to the responsibilities and privileges of Canadian citizenship.
