Citizenship and Immigration Canada
The residence calculator is for permanent residents applying for citizenship as adults (18 years of age or older).
You can use the calculator to find out if you have lived in Canada long enough to be eligible for citizenship. If you have, the calculator will tell you that you are eligible to apply. If you have not, it will tell you when you will be eligible to apply.
