No. Assuming that there are no other legal impediments to your

entering Canada, you could get into Canada. You could apply for

permanent resident status - something you should do BEFORE you

arrive in Canada. Being married to a Canadian citizen would

probably be a big advantage. Getting Canadian citizenship is a

whole other process. Before you can apply, you have to have lived

in Canada for three years without interruption or, in some cases,

for three of the last four years. If you meet all of the

requirements, THEN you can become a Canadian citizen. Being married

to a Canadian will help with that. But marrying a Canadian will NOT

automatically make you a Canadian citizen.
