Questions remain as the Federal Government gets ready to change the Citizenship Act

The Canadian Federal Government is reportedly preparing a bill to amend the Citizenship Act, which could impact more than 3,500 stateless individuals currently residing in Canada. These individuals, known as “Lost Canadians,” include former citizens who had their citizenship revoked due to provisions of the act that have since been repealed. Despite a court order to amend the act by June 19, specifics about the proposed changes remain unclear. Concerns persist about a potential “substantial connection test,” which could require parents to prove their ties to Canada to pass citizenship to children born abroad.
