You are quoting from the list of possible professions for a guarantor when you apply from outside of Canada. In Canada the requirements are easier to meet.

Your guarantor must:
  • have known you for at least two years
    • if the guarantor is for your child’s passport, they must have known you for at least two years and must know of your child
  • be available if we need to contact them
  • be a Canadian citizen 18 years of age or older
  • provide the information needed that’s in their passport
  • have been 16 years of age or older when he or she applied for his or her own passport

Hi guys do i have to send my citizenship certificate with my passport application while im applying canadian passport or not

From How to apply for a new passport (emphasis mine):

Include the following documents with your application form:
If you apply at a passport office you will need to take all the necessary documents, but they will not need to keep your certificate.

Yes, as long as they meet the criteria.

Your guarantor must:

  • have known you for at least two years
    • if the guarantor is for your child’s passport, they must have known you for at least two years and must know of your child
  • be available if we need to contact them
  • be a Canadian citizen 18 years of age or older
  • provide the information needed that’s in their passport
  • have been 16 years of age or older when he or she applied for his or her own passport
  • hold a five-year or 10-year Canadian passport that, on the day you submit your application, is:
    • expired for no more than one year or
    • valid, meaning it isn’t:
      • expired
      • damaged
      • inaccessible
      • suspended or revoked
      • reported lost or stolen
      • found and returned
      • been destroyed by us
      • requested to be returned
If you’re the parent or legal guardian and you’re applying on behalf of your child, you cannot sign as guarantor on your child’s application. However, the other parent (not submitting the application) can sign as long as they meet the requirements.
