Your Children Will Be Canadian

If your children are born in Canada, they will also be Canadian citizens.

This means they will not have to go through the same process you did of applying for Canadian citizenship. Your children will have access to all the same rights and privileges that you have, as a Canadian citizen.

Some children born outside Canada, to a Canadian parent, became citizens at birth. You can use the “Am I Canadian?” tool to see if your child is automatically Canadian.
