Canadian citizenship applications surge after government makes them accessible in condom dispensers

Canadian citizenship applications surge after government relaxes language, residency rules

There was a spike in applications for Canadian citizenship after the government relaxed the rules around residency requirements and language proficiency this fall.

Figures from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship provided to CBC News show there was an average of 3,653 applications a week in the six months before changed were brought in Oct. 11.

The number shot up to 17,500 applications the week after the new requirements kicked in. There were 12,530 applications submitted the week after that, but data for subsequent weeks is not yet available.

“Reducing the physical presence requirement gives more flexibility to applicants to meet the requirements for citizenship and encourages more immigrants to take the path to citizenship,” said Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship spokeswoman Nancy Caron. “This helps individuals who have already begun building lives in Canada achieve citizenship faster.”

    In other words the Liberals have made Canadian citizenship meaningless and valueless, which means that real Canadians will pay the price. What a disgrace to all our ancestors who sacrificed blood and life to create and to defend this country.

      On June 30, 2017, Justin Trudeau was on CTV’s Your Morning show, where he stated that Canada was more the country of those who were born elsewhere because they chose to live here, versus those who were merely born here.

      I think that says everything about where Justin stands on this.

    • Yep.

    So the liberals stripped the following requirements from citizenship.

    1) residency – so now you can go back to your 3rd world shit hole and continue to build time towards citizenship.

    2) language proficiency – so now you can be an illiterate who is unemployable and be a burden on society and yet still be excepted into the country.

    3) income – gone is the need to support yourself and have an income other than welfare.

    4) barbaric practices – so you can no longer be bared for thinking fgm, jihad and rape are ok.

    5) criminal past – since we didn’t screen the refugees for criminal past it in effects means this provision is dead.

    6) oath of loyalty – thats gone now too.

    I work up north.
    How many of these new Canadians have Boer accents?

    • Drunk by Noon ✓

      Not likely any, but I bet a few could tell you what Boer’s taste like.

      • Alain

        I gather you are not talking about Boer meat goats.

    Thank god there are only just over 7,000,000,000 people outside canada .

    Buy real estate in Toronto folks… you can’t make land and the current $1.6 million single detached brick 3 storey home will shoot to over $4 million while rents will push out all the low income people which the liberals and elites will like.

    I’m surprised our retarded fuckwit of a leader hasn’t to put citizenship applications into boxes of cracker jacks.
    I suppose I shouldn’t say that too loud because he just might not have thought of that…yet!

    • Alain

      Well, I think this amounts to the same thing, just without the cracker jack boxes.

    Somebody should commission a study to see how many white, anglophone Canadians it takes to support each refugee and then subtract from that the number of people in Canada ALREADY on welfare.
    I bet that’s a negative number already.

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      Wait a minute, you said commission a study.

    “to join the “Canadian family easier and more flexible.”
    To make the Islamization of Canadastan, easier and faster.

  • How could any of this go wrong?

    Election in 2019.

      I earlier said it was the same, but after second thought I find it worse. At least they would need to purchase a box of Cracker Jack, whereas the Liberals have made it that they don’t even need to do that.
