Certificate of citizenship
The Certificate of citizenship is an official document certifying the individual is a legal resident of the country. The Certificate of citizenship is not the same as a Birth certificate. Each country has different laws that must be followed before applicants can receive the Certificate of citizenship.

Canadian Citizenship Certificate
The Canadian Citizenship Certificate is a small card that residents can use to prove that they are a Canadian citizen.
To receive a Canadian citizenship certificate:
- Apply for citizenship.
- Take the citizenship test, if you are between the ages of 18 and 54.
- Attend a citizenship ceremony, if you are 14 or older. Once they have taken the oath of citizenship at a ceremony, they become a Canadian citizen. New citizens receive their certificate of citizenship at the ceremony.
