Canadian Citizenship Test (2013)
The new version of the
Canadian citizenship test, launched by the federal government starting March
15, 2010, is based on the new study guide called
"Discover Canada: The
Rights and Responsibilities of Citizenship". The new manual contains several
chapters, the largest of which is the chapter about Canadian history. Other
chapters include Canada’s Economy, the Justice System, Federal Elections,
Canadian Symbols, etc.
During the test, you will have 30 minutes to answer 20 multiple choice
questions. If you make more than 5 mistakes, you will fail the test. Note that
some questions - for example, questions about federal elections and voting
procedures - are mandatory, meaning that even one single mistake can result in a
failed exam. You get only one chance to write the citizenship test: if you fail,
you will not be allowed to take the written test again.
