IRCC Introduces New Canadian Citizenship By Descent Legislation

Dear future neighbour,

Canadian Immigration Minister, Marc Miller introduced a new Canadian citizenship by descent legislation called the Bill C-71 today, May 23, 2024.

This bill aims to extend citizenship by descent beyond the first generation while preserving the value of Canadian citizenship. It would immediately give Canadian citizenship to those born abroad to a Canadian parent who was also born abroad before the Act takes effect.

Children born overseas and adopted by Canadian parents beyond the first generation will also be granted citizenship directly.

After the law takes effect, parents born in another country who have or adopt children born outside Canada must have been in Canada for at least 1,095 days before their child is born or adopted to pass on citizenship.

Bill C-71, a law to change the Citizenship Act (2024), would bring back citizenship for “Lost Canadians” who lost it or never got it because of old rules in past citizenship laws. Before the law starts, Bill C-71 would also give citizenship to the children and grandchildren of “lost Canadians,” and to anyone born outside Canada to a Canadian parent in later generations.

More update on this information as it unfolds but definitely exciting news in many quarters.
