Canada Launches New Citizenship Test For Immigrants

Canada Launches New Citizenship Test For ImmigrantsThe Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants has launched a new test to help young people understand/know Canada better. Those desiring for a citizenship should pass the test. The Canadian Govt is keen to help them in passing the test. Immigrant services agency OCASI has launched a website called www.citizenshipcounts.ca.

OCASI has also launched an Android/iPhone app that helps young people prepare for the test and also learn the benefits of the citizenship. The site helps young people learn how to apply for a test and ways of preparing for it. Users of the website are given badges as they complete the online educational tasks.

CitizenshipCounts.ca is funded by Citizen and Immigration Canada, while other organizations such as settlement.org, newyouth.ca and Richmond Public Library are involved in providing support to the website. Aspirants can benefit from the online citizenship test module provided by Richmond Public Library, so that one can practice and understand the test before attempting it.

For people who are totally new to the immigration process, the site has been designed to be educative and fun. One can simply follow the links given in the site, attempt the test, compare and share the results with others, gather more knowledge about the benefits of having a Canadian citizenship etc.

A new immigrant/student aspiring to become a citizen of Canada can gather from the website the following benefits:

  • Entitled to participate in the voting process
  • Get involved in politics
  • Eligible to apply for jobs
  • Easy to travel within the country

Commenting on the new site, Debbie Douglas, Executive Director of OCASI, said:

“Many immigrant and refugee youth are unsure of what it means to be a Canadian citizen, or are unaware of their citizenship status. Complications arise if they try to travel or get charged with a crime.”

“We are confident that Citizenshipcounts.ca will help change that trend.”

You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
