Citizenship by descent

Do I have a birthright to Canadian citizenship?

If you were born outside of Canada and one of your parents was a Canadian citizen at the time of your birth, you have a birthright to Canadian citizenship.

You don’t need to become a Canadian citizen, you should apply for your proof of Canadian Citizenship.  In most cases, it would make the person a dual citizen of Canada and the country she/he was born.  Obtaining a proof of Canadian citizenship certificate allows you to live, study or work in Canada without needing any permits.

You are eligible for a proof of Canadian Citizen if:

  • If you were born outside Canada and one of your parents was a Canadian citizen at the time of your birth.
  • If your child was born outside of Canada, and you or the child other parent was a Canadian citizen when the child was born.
  • If you were born outside of Canada and one of your grandparents was a Canadian citizen when you were born, you might be a Canadian Citizen.
  • If you were born in Canada, and you would like to obtain a proof of your Canadian citizen.

A Canadian citizenship certificate is not a travel or identity document. To travel internationally you need a passport. You need your original Canadian citizenship certificate to apply for a Canadian passport.
