waiver

When you get a waiver, you're excused from something that's usually required.

For example, when you apply to become a Canadian citizen, you can ask Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to give you a waiver if you can't meet the requirements to:

  • know enough English or French, or
  • pass the citizenship test that shows your knowledge of Canada and what it means to be a Canadian citizen.
