 Citizenship Test Tips

Previously, the citizenship test contained certain mandatory questions, however ..... Before 2010, citizenship test contained certain mandatory questions which needed to be answered correctly by applicants in order to pass the test.
The three mandatory questions tested applicants on the following:

- the right to vote;
- the right to run for elected office; and
- voting procedures related to elections.

However, because Section 15 of the Citizenship Regulations now specifies that applicants are required to have sufficient knowledge of a broad range of topics, the inclusion of mandatory questions in the citizenship test will no longer be in effect as of October 14, 2010.
