Can I submit an old version of the application form for Canadian citizenship?

It depends on the application and how old the form is.

The newest version is always available in your application package.

You can find the version date on the bottom left corner of the form. For example, “CIT 0002 (01-2019)” means the version date is January 2019.

If you submitted a form older than October 2020 or 2017

  • we’ll return your application
  • you’ll have to resubmit your application with the newest version of the form

If you used the correct form and we returned the application to you as incomplete, you

  • can resubmit your application with the same form once you get the missing information or document
  • don’t need use the newest form to resubmit your application
