Default Dual citizenship US and Canada

Has anyone applied for proof of Canadian citizenship under the new ruling that happened in 2009. I'm going through the process and want to know how long it usually takes. It took a month for them to even send back an acknowledgment that they even got my application. Canadian bureaucracy is slow.

What new ruling? You are going through what process? Who wants proof of your Canadian citizenship? I had no problems getting documentation when needed.

Dual Citizenship

Canadian citizenship law before February 15, 1977, limited dual citizenship. Many individuals who became citizens of another country before that date lost their Canadian citizenship. However, on April 17, 2009, a new law came into effect that automatically restored citizenship to many of those individuals who lost it under the previous citizenship law and automatically gave citizenship to others who never had it. If you think this applies to you and you have questions, please contact us.


This explains it. I just want to know how long this takes to get my proof "card".

The Canadian passport renewal process only takes about 2-3 weeks (submission > delivery) for someone living in the US. A citizenship card shouldn't take much longer. Did you submit all required documentation? IE: certified copy of your Canadian birth certificate?

No it is not, we have people that were born in the USA to Canadian parents. the Parents failed to either register the kid as a Canadian and or due to arcane laws, the rules stripped citizenship away
