Re: Question On Becoming A Citizen in 1920s Canada #canada
You are sort of correct, but not quite.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
First, there was no concept of Citizenship in Canada. If you naturalized, you because a British Subject (citizenship in Canada did not come about until 1947). But that does not alter your basic question. The Naturalization Act of 1914 required an applicant to have been resident in Canada for at least 1 year, and resident in some British territory for at least 5 years. So residence in England for 4 years followed by just 1 year in Canada would suffice.
That probably does not address your case. Census data is notoriously unreliable. The naturalization file would likely give the data of arrival as well as the ship.
Sadly with the pandemic, as Jeri knows, it is taking many months to get naturalization records.
