I have a researcher looking for naturalization/citizenship statistics for the years 1985-2015. We can find the information for all of the years except 1991-2001. I managed to track down the 1991 statistics from the 1991 Citizenship and Immigration Canada Annual Report but am having trouble with the other years. Immigration statistics dealing with temporary and permanent residents can be readily found but the citizenship statistics are proving more difficult.
I have found recent citizenship information from CIC only. Try contacting directly. To submit a request for data, please email Statistics Canada with a detailed description of your requested report.
