Stop Citizenship Bill Language / Knowledge Test Amendment

Urgent - Act Today!

The Canadian Senate has adopted a motion to amend Bill C-6 (the Citizenship Bill) to increase the requirement of language and knowledge test for citizenship from age 55 to 60.

The Bill is almost at the final stage of becoming law, but is yet to receive final approval in Parliament.

Contact your Member of Parliament today and ask them to reject the language amendment.
