There are many benefits to being a Canadian citizen, one of which is the absolute right to enter and remain in Canada. Equally important is the right to vote. Recently the Canadian government has made changes to how it screens applications for citizenship. These changes are more “enforcement” oriented than ever before. NLS is concerned that recent changes have the potential to disproportionately further disenfranchise people already living on the margins for reasons of mental health or poverty; these applicants will be less likely to overcome the increased barriers to citizenship.
