I had applied for Canadian citizenship in June 2014 and i received the acknowledgement and 'discover Canada' booklet.
Recently i received RQ and I have to send it within 45 days. I was kind of expecting this...
I immigrated to Canada as PR in June 2006 and lived there for 3 yrs( i have fulfilled the basic residency requirement-1095 days) before moving to USA in 2009. My husband is a Canadian citizen. Also, i got my PR renewed while I was living in USA. After we moved to USA we have visited Canada on and off for visa renewal and other personal occasions too.
So now that i have received RQ, my question is after i complete the RQ application and send it to them, once they review it say after 35 months, will they grant me citizenship?
Else i read in some websites that they might revoke my PR status as well... Is that true??
I am not sure whether to fill out the RQ application or not???
I would really appreciate if someone who has been in the same situation or knows something about this reply.
You can count time spent outside Canada toward the residence requirement for a grant of citizenship ( ONLY ) in certain circumstances:
IF you spent the time with a spouse who is a Canadian citizen working at that time with the:
* Federal public administration of Canada.
* public service of a province.
* Canadian armed forces.
However living outside Canada with a spouse who is a Canadian citizen will allow you to maintain your PR status in Canada.
