Take a Citizenship Challenge Test
Wednesday, April 22, 2015

Presented by Historica Canada through funding from Citizenship and Immigration Canada, the Citizenship Challenge asks Canadians to test their national knowledge by studying for and writing a mock citizenship exam in French or English. While everyone can register for the Citizenship Challenge to test their knowledge, this particular project targets youth and students in classrooms who are encouraged to participate as a class.

Residents, teachers and students in Surrey are encouraged to register for the Citizenship Challenge test.  Deadline to take the Challenge test is January 31, 2016.

Group Grand Prize

A Citizenship Celebration is awarded to a class (Grade 7 to 12) or youth group with the highest average. This Celebration includes a citizenship reaffirmation ceremony, treats, inspiring stories of civic engagement and fun activities. The event will be hosted at the winner’s school in February

Individual Grand Prizes

Two students (aged 12 to 18) who receive 100% will win an all-expenses-paid trip to Ottawa. Awarded in March, winners spend three days exploring Canada’s history and culture in the nation’s capital. Past winners have stayed at the Fairmont Château Laurier and have toured Parliament Hill, Rideau Hall, the Canadian War Museum and the National Gallery of Canada.

Great Canadian Prizes

Participants who score 75% or higher can win prizes including Red Canoe baseball caps, Hudson’s Bay Company gloves and magazine subscriptions from Canada’s History and Canadian Geographic. Teachers can win a set of Penguin Canada's Extraordinary Canadians books for their class!
