Benefits of having citizenship include:

  • the ability to vote.
  • the ability to run for office.
  • can receive a number of government benefits.
  • status in the country cannot be revoked.

There are three ways of getting citizenship:

  1. born in Canada
  2. born to parents with Canadian citizenship
  3. naturalization.

Those who successfully obtained permanent resident status will lose that status upon gaining citizenship.
