Canadian citizenship is now 75 years old
Canada is a great nation that officially took shape on July 1, 1867. However, Canada maintained its close relationship and dependency on the United Kingdom at the time.

As a Canadian citizen, you may enjoy many benefits, such as:
- The right to enter and leave Canada at any time
- The ability to live and make a living anywhere in Canada
