Do you become a Canadian citizen when you marry a Canadian

The answer might surprise some, but no, you do not gain Canadian Citizenship by marring and Mountie (or any other Canadian for that matter).

Do You Become A Canadian Citizen When You Marry A Canadian

Marriage to a Canadian citizen does not give you automatic citizenship. A misconception some prospective migrants, looking for an easy immigration road, might have is that by marrying a Canadian you will be granted Canadian Citizenship when in fact the only way to become a citizen is by applying for citizenship adhering to the requirements and guideline set by Canada Immigration and Citizenship.
