Homayoon Fotros started this petition to Immigration Refugees Citizenship Canada (IRCC)

All the Citizenship Tests and Ceremonies have been canceled since March because of the Covid19 situation. These cancellations have concerned many newcomers to Canada who have been eligible to be granted Canadian citizenship and get their passport. This is while most in-person services and operations have resumed the work in Canadian cities: Bars, Restaurants, Gyms, Banks,... and soon schools will reopen too.

Having the Canadian passport is crucial to many newcomers whose citizenship process is delayed and suspended: Some want to apply for government jobs, some want to travel to home or other countries with a valid Canadian passport, and some require submitting a copy of their Canadian passport for school registration, financial aid applications and other purposes, to name a few examples.

We urge the the Government of Canada, specifically IRCC, to resume in-person Citizenship Tests and Ceremonies while following safety protocols and guidelines. We must underscore the fact that these operations have high priority and urgency for affected Canadians, and thus must be prioritized by the Government of Canada, too.
