1947, to be exact; the passage of the Canadian Citizenship Act. All British subjects born in Canada prior to then, were made Canadian citizens automatically; all born on Canadian soil subsequently, or naturalized, were Canadian citizens. Period.

Contrary to what some foreigners believe, Canadians have not been British subjects for 76 years.

Bzzzzt. Wrong.. It is clearly not the Red Maple Leaf on the flag. Leaves of Red Maple Acer rubrum are rounded off on the lower lobes. It is closest to Acer saccharum, the Sugar Maple, but its tiny 4th-5th lobes are missing on the flag design. It's resembles a Maple leaf and it's red on the current flag, but it's not "Red Maple".
