Changes to citizenship law in Canada
Canadian government adopted the law to amend the Citizenship Act which brings significant changes to the acquisition of citizenship.
On April 17, 2009 the new law came into force, which initiates some changes in acquisition of the Canadian citizenship. Among others, some modification in the acquisition of the citizenship by descent have entered into force with this legislation. The so called “one generation limitation” will apply. According to it, the Canadian citizenship to children born outside of Canada is granted only if at least one of parents has the Canadian citizenship by means of being born or naturalized in the country.
