You Cannot Be Deported

If you are not a dual citizen, you are not at risk of being deported. Deportation is when immigration authorities order you to leave Canada. People who are deported are sent back to their country of origin.

People get deported for committing crimes, violating immigration rules (e.g. illegally obtaining your immigration status), or being a security threat to other Canadians.

If you are a Canadian citizen, and do not hold any other citizenship (dual citizen), you are not at risk of being deported.
