Why do I have to do a residency questionnaire after already applying for Canadian citizenship?
There are some reasons why you would receive this residency questionnaire. Several citizenship offices are conducting due diligence to ensure that applicants have been truthful in their citizenship applications and meet the residency requirement. Citizenship asks application, to complete this questionnaire as well as provide documentation to demonstrate that you did reside in Canada for at least three years before applying for citizenship.
Citizenship applications can take a long time to process and even longer if you are asked to complete the questionnaire. It is important that you consult with an immigration lawyer to go over your residency history and ensure that you do not have any gaps or errors in your application.
