Canadian Citizenship – US Citizen Born or Adopted Outside Canada to a Canadian Mom or Dad
If you are an American citizen and your mother or father was already a Canadian citizen at the time you were born or adopted, either from having been born in Canada or having naturalized in Canada, then you are also a Canadian citizen through descent.
To prove that you are Canadian, you can apply for your first Canadian citizenship certificate (proof of Canadian citizenship). Having this document will allow you to get your Canadian passport and relocate to Canada at any time.
Contact us if you believe you may be a Canadian citizen through descent to get your proof of Canadian citizenship.
