More than 300,000 people took the Oath of Citizenship on a virtual platform between April 1, 2020, and April 30, 2022. Now, on average, the Department invites around 3,000 applicants each week to participate in citizenship ceremonies. Currently, Canada has one of the world’s highest naturalization rates, with about 85% of immigrants becoming citizens.
