Waiver for citizenship requirements
To become a Canadian citizen, you must meet certain requirements when you apply. If you can’t meet a specific requirement, you can request an exemption. This is called a waiver. If your waiver is approved, it means you don’t need to meet that requirement.
You can only request a waiver for
- the citizenship test
- proving your English or French language skills
- the oath of citizenship
If you can meet the requirement but you need help with it, request an accommodation instead.
