Does the new law which is going to be implemented state that a person has to stay 2
out of 5 years (ie., 730 days) or its the same 1095 days?.

If the above is correct, does it apply for all or new immigrants only?

P.S How does immigration know that a person has been outside canada (U.S) when the
officer has just looked at the passport and didn't punch anything in the
computer, or it's one duty to be accurate?

Thanx

You are confusing the requirements for maintaining permanent resident status, and
that for eligibility for citizenship. The 2 out of 5 years is the proposed criteria
for maintaining permanent resident status, which 1095 days presently remains the
criteria for eligibility for citizenship.

Other documents can be used to corroborate physical residence, which is the
responsibility of the applicant. These may include credit card statements, phone
bills, leases, etc.

Cannot remember where but the buzz is bill has been passed and June 28th is the time
when citizenship applications can be made after being here for 2 years.

IS THAT TRUE? or there is no change proposed even for the citizenship application?

As David Cohen said in his reply to the post below there has not been any change to
the Citizenship Act and eligibility requirements for citizenship remain the same -
accumulation of 1,095 days of residency in Canada within 4 years prior to
application.

June 28th, 2002 is the target date for the implementation of new Immigration Act
which was approved by Parliament last year. Immigration Act has nothing to do with
citizenship matters, it only governs immigration matters.

There is no new citizenship law on the horizon yet.

Hi,

I would like to add about the exception in the Citizenship Law i.e. the exception for
children under 17. Where a parent who is already a citizen, or who is applying for
citizenship, may apply on behalf of any children aged 17 years and under. In such a
case, the child must be a PR of Canada, but is NOT required to have been in Canada
for three years.

Hope this helps. Neil
