Customer Question

My parents and all of my relatives were born in Canada. My father became a U.S. citizen and I was born in the U.S. My mother lives in the U.S., but is still a Canadian citizen. Am I a Canadian citizen? How can I become one? I was born in 1959. All of my relatives still live in Canada, except my brother and mother.

Once you get proof of citizenship you can then apply for a Canadian passport.
