Would you like to learn about the test, what to expect and how to answer the questions? Want some help with vocabulary and learning about the Canadian government and institutions? Need to know where to find extra study resources and practice tests?
The test is the last step before the citizenship ceremony. Taken in English or French, the test will confirm that you have sufficient knowledge of Canada (geography, history, society, values, etc.) and that you understand the rights and responsibilities of citizenship.
The test is based on the Discover Canada study guide; questions are drawn from the entire study guide. The federal government says you can be tested on any section of any chapter, so basically you have to memorize the entire study guide. The written test consists of 20 questions that you have to answer within 30 minutes. You have to answer at least 15 questions correctly (so you are allowed 5 incorrect answers). The test is multiple-choice, which means you will be presented with 4 possible answers for each question (unless it is a True/False question with only two possible answers) and you will need to pick the best answer.
Here’s a sample question from the test:
What is celebrated in Canada on the 15 February?
