The Government of Canada introduced Bill C-71 granting citizenship by descent

On May 23, 2024, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) introduced Bill C-71 to extend citizenship beyond the first generation, automatically granting it to those born abroad to Canadian parents. It also covers children adopted by Canadian parents abroad. Parents born abroad must have spent at least 1,095 days in Canada before their child’s birth or adoption to pass on citizenship. The law also restores citizenship to “Lost Canadians” and their descendants, including anyone born abroad to a Canadian parent in the second or subsequent generations.
