From Nasani Louga My Dear, I am the lady, Nasani Louga from Israel to a widow late Mr. Steven Louga I am 68 years old, I am a Christian, suffering from long-term breast, all indication my conditions cancer is really deteriorating and is pretty obvious that I would not live more than three months, my doctors rding accommodation, and in all aspects of medical tests indication, this is because the cancer stage has gotten to a very bad scenario that there is hope for me to be a living person again, My late husband was killed during the raid against terrorism in France Ivory Coast, and during the period of our marriage we could not produce any child, my husband was very wealthy and after his death, inherited all his business and wealth. doctors have advised me that I can not live four months, so now decided to divide part of this wealth, to contribute to the development of the church in America, Africa, As Europe d ia a solution to the problem created especially for the underprivileged and orphanage homes. I selected after visiting the website I prayed about it; I am willing to donate the sum of $ 2.5 million, to the underprivileged. Please, I want you to consider the background is lying on a bench in Ivory Coast and in my statement submitted in an application for the transfer of money on your behalf. Finally, I sincerely pray that this money when transferred will be used for this purpose although I am late then, because I've come to discover that wealth acquisition without Christ is vanity and made me promise to God that the fund will be used to build his temple. The grace of our Lord Jesus, the love of God and the fellowship of God be with you and your family hope urgent response. God bless you. Ms. Nasani Louga

But what is the purpose of getting the citizenship? At least some prove to be integrated into the country is needed, right?

The real test is how you as immigrant behave in Canada. You do not want to work hard - you live You do not want to to adapt Canadian culture - you live You do not recognize Canadian values - you live home you abuse the system -> back home I don't think other test is necessary

As I have chosen to be married to a Canadian and am in the process of immigrating, I wish to learn all that can be retained at my age about Canada. I still care about the USA but am expanding my horizons to include my "adopted" country. I see nothing wrong at all with requiring those seeking citizenship in Canada to learn the history, heritage, constitution, language and to be tested prior to being granted citizenship.

The test should definitely be HARDER. It should be as hard as a GMAT, at least. Getting into an MBA program should be EASIER than becoming a Canadian. For a simple reason: getting a Master degree can mean something, or can mean nothing - it all depends on what you do with it. While being a Canadian gives you REAL, tangible benefits, provided by the whole Canadian society. It should be DESERVED; and eligibility should NEVER be just a formality.

As w r staying for longer time in canada, but still have to giv the test why... we know it but test to be given is something not ood idea. if test given there should not be pass or fail. Some time u try to do well bu r not fortunate to do that does not mean u cannot be oo citizen. Lastly I think people who r born in this country might also not know every thing about this country it epends all on he indiviual how he/she take th knowledge.

Test is not THAT hard and this site is amazingly helpful! (Thanks to it I did pass the test) Yes, you do have to study, yes – you will never use the knowledge you got. Still, you are learning about the country you are planning to live for ythe rest of your live. Can it be better made? Sure, nothing is perfect. But even if you did not pass – what is the problem? You still have your residence card. You cannot vote? If it’s hard for you to read and understand a simple book, are you sure you can read and understand political programs of the people you are going to vote for?

I do not think the test should be necessary if you have been in this country most of your life or if you belong to a commonwealth country and as far as changing things like like s.Khan as said no if it is a test for you to become a canadian citizen then queen /king is right canada is a commonwealth country and things in canada should not be changed to suit other peoples beleifs you left that behind to come to canada go by canadas laws and quit trying to change to suit

I became a Canadian citizen and I am PROUD to be represented by the Queen. If you do not feel the same do not become a citizen here. Simple as that. If you want to be a Canadian the sovereign for you WILL be the Queen. Otherwise, I don't think Canada welcomes you and obviously you do not welcome the laws and rules of Canada. Not a good candidate for being a good citizen here. Canada does NOT have to "adjust" to you, you have to adjust to Canada if you want to be a citizen. This is not a religious based rule of law country.

The Sovereign for Muslims, Buddists, Christians, and Martians, AS LONG AS THEY ARE CANADIAN CITIZENS, is Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. If you are not happy with that, go back to Pakistan (Canada will probably lose a taxi driver, but there are hundreds of others waiting at the door).

AS a university grade who has studied Canadian history extensively, I found the sample questions for this test very difficult. I am sure that more than 80 % of true Canadians would not be able to pass the test. I feel it is unfair to expect immigrants to know such illusive and non-essential facts when almost all of their daily lives would never involve that knowledge at all. We need to test them on real life situations to make sure that they can live successfully here. It is illogical to expect them to become university graduates when they are trying to become common citizens of our common country.

Citizenship test should not be exist. The knowledge and smartness doesn't answer for honesty. The Canadian citizenship conditions should be based on attitude and honesty of the people who had lived in this country minimum 5 years, without any crime, law breaking act ,and proof of honesty(as example signature of 20 Canadian citizens ,employer,coworker,friends in workplace etc..)

I can't believe that after living in Canada for over 30 years we are now required to take a "test" - if you have been here for 30 years; have worked; paid taxes, have not been in jail, etc. why on earth would you have to take a "test" - have we not "passed the test"; I bet people who were born in Canada don't know most of the information in the Discover Canada guide; and to top it all off, you have to also pay $200 to apply to become a citizen (once again after I have been here fore 30 years);

The test is not meant to screen off people who don't know some obscure data in the book. It is meant to send a message to conservative electorate. It's simple politics, basic populism. Large groups of people LIKE the idea of foreigners needing to pass the test. So, fine, let's have it. Your outrage is not strong enough, and is outweighed by benefits you'll receive (otherwise, why didn't you apply in all these 30 years?). Rednecks are happy, you're happy (eventually), there's more $$$ in govt's pocket... I say, it's a darn good idea!!! It's easy and it works.

I agree, if you have been landed for say more than ten years, then why on earth would you need this test to become a citizen. They should streamline the process for long time PR's. If you have been here that long, and always been a good resident of Canada there is no reason to need a "test" of knowledge that not even most Canadian born citizens know. AND it would speed things up for those who are totally new to Canada as well and take some of the work load off CIC.

I don't think you have to pay if you fail. And you can't take the test twice. if you fail you have to pass an interview. I am not sure if they charge for that, but it is highly unlikely. What is more similar to a "Cash Grab", is what is done every day by immigrants who come to Canada to take advantage of a generous social system, get subsidized housing, subsidized everything, and then have the balls to COMPLAIN that there is a citizenship test and they actually have to DO something in return. Give me a break. There should be a test like that every fuckin' day.

Ivana, this is absurd: people can come to Canada from the Moon, we don't have to be FAIR to anyone, they MUST speak our language and learn our ways. And if WE decide (our government decides = we decide) that they need to know the HISTORY of Canada, then TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT, but that's the condition. Canada doesn't exist for everybody to use it as a safe escape place. IT IS NOT A RIGHT, but a PRIVILEGE, which Canada decides to grant, or NOT.

The new citizenship test has a lot of issues. Canadian natives DO NOT know the answer for most of the questions and this is a shame because the government forces us to sustain such a test to qualify. On top of the useless questions like who is gay activist and who is not, people who don't even know English can take the test based on luck. I have nothing against immigrants, but the test should evaluate the language, the geography, the elections policy and some things about native people. I don't have to know who invented the time frames, the BlackBerry or who was the CPrail director. It's not relevant to the day-to-day living!!! The test should be reviewed and modified. The old one was acceptable, but again, it doesn't test your ability to speak and understand. Also, everywhere they are talking about values. Then, how comes, they sent me the old book instead of the new one and I had to find out less than a week prior to the test? Most of the Canadians don't have values and don't care about them. It is not about being Canadian with the test... The new test is such a shame! I fully deserve the citizenship, but I might fail it because of some stupid questions. If I would be gay, I would probably be proud that Canada is allowing me to be like that. Well...I think Canada has no real values - it just gives freedom and that's about it. They are proud about nothing. Really! NOTHING!

I agree with the test, however, on questioning several born Canadians they could not answer more than half of the questions. This leads me to believe that the test is much to detailed, Granted we should know the history of our new country. I agree there should be mandatory questions about the Government, economy and resources etc. As for the history and years and Names, I feel is it a bit much and very stressful for immigrants.

The new test on purpose biased in favor of immigrants from Europe. I had worst experience. I received "A look at Canada" and tested from new book. Learned about existence of any new book and test based on it while at the test center. Even the test appointment notice did not mention anything about book having been changed. This behavior is sheer injustice and is definitely not a Canadian value. Of course I will fail it, now what are my options. Face the Judge or withdraw the applications. Torries are really limiting immigrants from selected countries.

The test is too hard. The new test since March 15, 2010 is even harder. Most of my Canadian friends don't even know the questions and they are smart people who finished colleges and universities. The test is too hard. I cannot imagine Canadians writing a test in another language and being in a foreign country for 3 years especially older people. The test is hard on purpose for people to do bad and then pay money to do it again. Dear people, please pray for me to pass the test tomorrow. Love you all <3

Well, there are enough people in Canada who cannot and do not want to even learn the official language. If after three years of living in Canada (this is the minimum requirement in order to apply for citizenship) you cannot understand the questions then I believe this is very sad. Respect the country you are living in and make an effort to learn one of the official languages and some historical/cultural/legal background. The test won't seem so hard after that.

The Discover Canada book has to be given to new immigrants on their first year of landing. I live in Canada and do know more about the things I read in Discover Canada. I appreciate people who put this book together. But you designed it harder. Thanks you

The Canadian citizenship test appears fair in that it encourages immigrants to have a working knowledge of Canada, their country of choice in which to settle.
