Canadian Citizenship

>> Wednesday, April 22, 2009


Last April 17, 2009 Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism announced the new law that will govern Canadian Citizenship.

This law hopes to restore or give back Canadian Citizenship to many who have lost it or did not have it due to outdated provisions in the past legislation.

Moreover, it will also protect the value of Canadian Citizenship for the future by limiting Citizenship descent.

Here's the highlight of the media release:

The Government of Canada takes Canadian citizenship seriously,” said Minister Kenney. “That is why we have taken concrete action to help many ‘lost Canadians’ who didn’t have citizenship and that is why we’re protecting its value for the future.”

The changes implemented today mean that certain people who became Canadian citizens on or after January 1, 1947, when the first citizenship act took effect, and who then lost citizenship, will have their status restored back to the date they lost it. Some may have lost it when they left the country. Others, born outside Canada, may have ceased to be Canadian by not taking steps to retain their citizenship.
