Were your parents born or reside in Canada? As per the recent law of the Canadian citizenship Act, all individuals whose parents were Canadian citizens are now Canadian. U.S citizens as well as others who were born outside of the country can be Canadian citizens. This law applies to first-generation Canadian citizens who are qualified to get citizenship.
Although you are a Canadian citizen you have to obtain proof of citizenship to claim your parents’ rights. The government of Canada invites those people to apply for evidence of citizenship to claim the rights of their parents such as getting a passport, working in Canada, and many more. There is no age limit required for this process, you can apply anytime even if your parents are not alive.
There is also no time limit between when your parents leave Canada and your application. This means that if you meet all the criteria, you can obtain Canadian citizenship, even if your parents left Canada decades ago.
Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) require applicants to demonstrate their biological or legal parents when the applicant was born. The IRCC accepts evidence such as birth certificates of Canadian parents, Canadian citizenship cards, or citizenship certificates.
IRCC will send an “Acknowledgment of Receipt” after confirming the completion of the submitted application. Upon approval of the application, the IRCC will send a Canadian Citizenship Certificate.
You are most welcome to contact an experienced Canadian immigration attorney to assist you with the process. A trusted attorney can double-check to make sure you meet all eligibility criteria and can correspond with the Canadian government to help you become a Canadian as quickly as possible.
