If you are a Canadian citizen, then you have a right to vote for how Canada should be.

Why should you vote?



Rights and Responsibilities




Canadian citizens have rights and responsibilities.

A right is something that you are given, and never questioned. A right is like a gift that belongs to you - it cannot be taken from you. A responsibility is something that you must do - actions that make you a good Canadian.

Now people who want to become Canadian citizens must prove they have a language benchmark of 4 for speaking and listening. Listen to a CBC interview about the new rules becoming a Canadian citizen.
