My friend is living in CA with US citizenship. She was born

Customer Question

My friend is living in CA with US citizenship. She was born and raised in Canada, so I think is still considered a Canadian too (by Canada, not the US). She has recently been charged with DUI. If convicted, will she be able to return to Canada?

So long as your friend is a Canadian citizen she can return home by right. There's nothing that can prevent her from returning home regardless of what her criminal record may be if any.

Let me know if you need any further clarification

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Thank you. She became an American citizen a few years ago. Would Canada still recognize her as a Canadian?
Expert:  Legal Ease replied 10 months ago.

Yes. Unless she took active steps to renounce her Canadian citizenship she is absolutely still a Canadian citizen.
