Who’s qualified to Take the Canadian Citizenship Test?

Becoming a Canadian citizen is a dream for many immigrants who have made Canada their new home. However, before becoming a citizen, one must first pass the Canadian Citizenship Test. This test assesses an individual’s knowledge of Canada’s history, geography, government, and values. In this article, we will discuss who is qualified to take the Canadian Citizenship Test and the eligibility criteria.


  1. Voter Information Card Registered voters will receive a Voter Information Card which confirms their presence in the National Register of Electors and provides information on when and where to vote.
  2. No Voter Information Card Received If a registered voter does not receive a Voter Information Card, they should contact their local elections office to ensure their presence on the voters’ list. The Elections Canada office in Ottawa can be contacted at 1-800-463-6868 if local contact information is not available.
  3. Advance Poll and Special Ballot Registered voters who cannot or prefer not to vote on Election Day can choose to vote at an Advance Poll or by Special Ballot. The voter’s information card includes details on the dates and locations of Advance Polls.
  4. Voting on Election Day On Election Day, voters should go to their designated polling station with their Voter Information Card and proof of their identity and address.
  5. Marking the Ballot Voters should mark an “X” in the circle next to the name of their chosen candidate.
  6. Secret Voting Voting is confidential, and voters will be invited to a private area to mark their ballot. Once marked, voters should fold their ballot and present it to the polling officials.
  7. Ballot Box The polling official will detach the ballot number and return the marked ballot to the voter for them to place it into the ballot box.
  8. Election Results After the polls close, all ballots are counted, and the results are made public. The election results can be viewed on the Elections Canada website (www.elections.ca) or via broadcast media.


The right to vote in federal elections or referendums is granted to all citizens of Canada who are at least 18 years old on election day and are registered to vote. The National Register of Electors, a permanent database of Canadian citizens who are 18 years of age or older and entitled to vote in federal elections and referendums, is used by Elections Canada, an impartial institution of Parliament, to compile the voters’ lists for these occasions.

Each eligible voter listed in the National Register of Electors receives a voter information card from Elections Canada once an election has been called. This card contains details on where and when to cast a ballot as well as a phone number to call if you need special assistance, like an interpreter.

You can still be added to the voters list at any moment, even on election day, if you are not on the National Register of Electors or did not get a voter information card. You must go to the polling place listed on your voter information card to cast your ballot on election day or in advance.
