No, there is no way. Your permanent job offer (or a job itself) in Canada has nothing
to do with the eligibility for citizenship. Sorry, but there are no shortcuts here...

I thought I read somewhere that a participant for Canada in the Olympics who was from
another country was granted early citizenship (ie: after being in Canada for 3 years)
in order for him to be a Canadian to participate in the Olympics. I believe he was
either a boxer or a wrestler I believe. That ticked me a little knowing that people
could bypass the system. That was quite a controversy in the National papers for a
fews weeks in their editorials. I wish I could remember his name and exactly what
year and Olympics it was at.

I meant to say after being in Canada for 2 years, NOT 3 years! Sorry

Why not? There are always people more important and special around us. Take Nelson
Mandela. He's even given honorary citizenship! Equalitarian needs not exclude
elitism at all.

Why should I have to learn Chinese? Where the hell do I live now? it is called
Canada! Or maybe you think that soon Chinese will replace English.... And about
French, I live in Toronto. You do not need French here; I go to the States every
year, you do not need French there either. In Europe, where I am from, English is the
common language when dealing with tourists, including France and Belgium. And English
is not even my native language.....

The law allows the government to waive any and all requirements for citizenship, and
grant someone immediate citizenship, "in order to alleviate cases of special and
unusual hardship or to reward services of an exceptional value to Canada".
[Citizenship Act, 5(4).]

It's my impression, BTW, that this provision is used very, very rarely. Also note
that this is =not= the same as the practice of giving notable world figures
"honorary" citizenship: a person who gets citizenship under 5(4) is a full-fledged
Canadian citizen.

As for the Olympics, it's my understanding that the IOC rules demand that every
competitor must be a citizen or national of the country which he/she is representing.
