Immigration Minister tables bill to extend citizenship rights to children born abroad

  • Immigration Minister Marc Miller introduced legislation to grant citizenship to some children born abroad, aiming to change a previous law by the Conservative government in 2009.
  • The bill extends citizenship by descent beyond the first generation born outside of Canada, requiring a substantial connection to Canada through physical presence.
  • A court ruling in December 2023 deemed part of Canada's Citizenship Act unconstitutional, stating the second-generation cut-off rule violated charter rights by denying automatic citizenship to children born abroad to Canadian parents born overseas.
