People who were not born in Canada may have to follow new rules to become Canadian citizens.
A new bill has been put forward that increases the length of time people must be physically in Canada before they can apply for citizenship.
They can’t say they live in Canada and then spend too much time outside the country.
The government says they want people to have direct experience of what it’s like to live in Canada, before they become a citizen.
The new rules extend the age for being able to speak and understand one of Canada’s official languages.
Previously, people 18 to 54 had to speak English or French and pass a Canadian knowledge test with the help of an interpreter.
