Canadian citizen


A Canadian citizen is a person who is Canadian by birth or who has applied for Canadian citizenship through Citizenship and Immigration Canada and has received a citizenship certificate.

You are probably a Canadian citizen if you were born in Canada. You may also be a Canadian citizen if you were born outside Canada to a Canadian parent, but not necessarily. For details on who qualifies as a Canadian citizen, and how to prove you are a Canadian citizen, please see Information About Canadian Citizenship from Citizenship and Immigration Canada.
