Virtual citizenship ceremonies help the Canadian Government reduce the backlog

The Canadian Government will soon allow new citizens to take the citizenship oath online without attending a mass swearing-in ceremony. This move will reduce the backlog of citizenship applications, shorten the application processing time, and make it easier for low-income working people to become citizens. The Government has seen a surge in citizenship applications, with more than double the number of applications received in 2022 compared to 2017. The Government is hoping to process 300,000 citizenship applications this year and has made the application process online. Of the 549,290 applicants since April 2020, over 99% have completed their oath of citizenship virtually.
