- Question 3
- Under today's immigration
law, once established in Canada, each new arrival is called a "landed
immigrant" and has all the rights of born Canadians, excluding political
rights such as the right to vote.
Each landed immigrant immediately has all the rights of born Canadians
except political rights. Landed immigrants must apply for and be granted
citizenship before they have the same political rights as Canadian-born
citizens, such as the right to vote.
