    Immigration Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC), formerly Citizenship & Immigration Canada (CIC) stopped issuing laminated Canadian citizenship cards in February 2012.

Moreover, you will receive a Canadian citizenship certificate instead of a card now. To change name on citizenship certificate, click on the following link:
