A Canadian is a Canadian is a Canadian
~ Prime Minister Justin Trudeau
Bill C-6 is an amendment to Canada’s Citizenship Act that will benefit thousands of immigrants in Canada. Effective June 19, 2017, Canada’s Bill C-6 has received Royal Assent and is now law. The new law simplifies and streamlines the process for immigrants to become Canadian citizens and assures all Canadian citizens are treated equally.
Some of the changes in Bill C-6 take effect immediately, while others come into effect later in 2017 or in 2018. This chart from IRCC (Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada) explains the changes that have been made to the Citizenship Act and indicates when these changes are expected to come into force.
