Hello Everyone.

I'm filling my application for citizenship. I was unemployed from (5 October 2012) to (18 April 2013). During that time I changed my City, province from Scarborough, Ontario to Vancouver, British Columbia. So I was unemployed in Scarborough from 5 October 2012 to 7 January 2013, and then moved to Vancouver and still was unemployed from 7 January 2013 to 18 April 2013. How should I fill Work and Education History section? I really appreciate any help I get.

Regards.

Hi,

I have 2 questions about the unemployment form, because it is a bit odd for me.

If I choose ''unemployed'' as activity, then I can fill in the time frame. So far so good. But it is also the following required:

Please describe what this person was doing during this period (e.g. job title, position, etc.) (required)
Please provide the name of the company, employer, school, or facility as appropriate. (required)
Country where activity took place (required)
City/Town where activity took place (required)

That doesn't make a lot of sense to me. Unemployed is unemployed. I was traveling in various countries and after that seeking for a job. I put in short statements. Traveling / Seeking Job; Unemployed; My country; My hometown

This will be probably another paragraph in my letter of explanation.

Does ''Alternative Civilian Service'' (instead of Military) count as government?

Thank you in advance

In both columns just mention 'Unemployed' and in contact information columns just put 'N/A'.. That's what I did and I confirmed it with IRCC...

Thank you MitCad. I will mention this in my letter of explanation as well. May I ask how it is possible to confirm things with the IRCC?
