If you have a permanent resident status in Canada, you can get the canadian citizenship.
Regardless of your age, if you are applying for citizenship, you must have:
Permanent Resident (PR) status in Canada
No unfulfilled conditions related to your PR status
Your PR status must not be in question. This means you must not:
Be under review for immigration or fraud reasons
Have certain unfulfilled conditions related to your PR status
Be under a removal order (an order from Canadian officials to leave Canada)
You don’t need a valid PR card to apply for citizenship. If you have an expired PR card, you can still apply for citizenship.
Regardless of your age, you must have been physically present in Canada for at least:
1095 days during the five years right before the date you sign your application
You may be able to use some of your time spent in Canada as a temporary resident or protected person towards your physical presence calculation. Each day spent physically in Canada as a temporary resident or protected person before becoming a permanent resident within the last 5 years will count as one half day, with a maximum of 365 days, towards your physical presence.
Temporary resident status includes lawful authorization to enter or remain in Canada as a:
Temporary resident permit holder
These requirements don’t apply to children under 18 where a parent or guardian has applied on their behalf for citizenship using the subsection 5(2) application form.
