Dear All, About police clearance, there is one explicit note on the citizenship form (adult) that goes like this: "If you were in your country of origin immediately prior to becoming a permanent resident and landing in Canada and this time falls within this four year period, you are NOT required to provide a police certificate. Please indicate this in the explanation box." That's clear enough. Then there is an example given: "You lived in France for one year (365 days) before you became a permanent resident 3 years ago. You did not travel to France after you became a permanent resident. You would answer “Yes” to the question and you would need to provide a police certificate from France if you did not provide one with your immigration application. If you provided a police certificate from France with your immigration application, tell us this in the box provided at Question 10b." My situation is almost identical to the example above, except that France should be replaced with my country of origin and that I traveled to my country of origin for 30 days after I became a PR, within the 4-year period. And, yes, I had provided a police certificate with my immigration application. So, my question is, should I submit one for my citizenship application as well?
