      Citizenship test is the last step before the grant of Canadian
      citizenship. Unlike citizenship tests in other countries, the test in
      Canada is usually a group event: sometimes, several hundred people
      sit the test together, which is why it is usually held in cultural
      centres or sport facilities. Before the test, the prospective
      citizen's identity needs to be established. Your invitation to the
      citizenship test will clearly indicate what documents you will have
      to bring with you. Typically, such documents are your current
      passport, birth certificate, drivers license, etc. Documents in
      languages other than Engish or French must be translated into either
      English or French by a sworn translator. Citizenship officers will
      check the validity of the documents and confirm that the person
      present at the test is the actual passport holder and the candidate
      for Canadian citizenship. They will also check the passport for
      possible travel stamps. If you seem to have "too many", they may mark
      your test form so that your absences are checked more thoroughly.
      Your stamps in the passport must coincide with the absences from
      Canada stated in the Application Form which you filled in at the very
      beginning of your naturalization process.

      Examinees are given pencils with an eraser tip, and forms where you
      will have to fill in the answers when the test starts. You will be
      asked not to look at the test papers before the official start of the
      citizenship test, as it is timed. Officers will first explain how to
      use the reply sheet, which are processed by computers and therefore
      need to be filled in in a very specific way. All explanations will be
      given in English and in French. In places where French is not widely
      used, they will ask if anybody requires explanations in French.

      The actual citizenship test includes 20 questions which need to be
      answered in 30 minutes. You must answer 12 of them correctly in order
      to pass. The tricky part is that 3 of these 20 questions will
      be "mandatory", which means that you must answer every one of them
      correctly in order to pass. Thus, if you answer 19 questions
      correctly, and only make one single mistake, but it happens to be a
      mandatory question, you will fail nonetheless.

      When you are ready - and some people finish the test under 10
      minutes - you can simply stand up, surrender your test papers to the
      officer nearest to you, and exit the test area. Unless you fail, you
      will not be notified of the results of the citizenship test; the
      invitation to take the oath of citizenship will imply that you passed
      the Canadian citizenship test successfully.
