New to Lost Canadians….
November 9, 2012 in Uncategorized
I am exploring where I might fit into Bill C-37 and came upon this site. My details are:
Mother born in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1915
Came with her family to Southern California in 1923
Met and married my father (who was born 1905 in Blackpool, England) in California in 1937
I was born in Hollywood, California in Feb 1948 and hold only a US Passport and have never applied elsewhere
Both parents died May 1990 — my mother remained a citizen of Canada and my father remained a British citizen
Is my reading of C-37 correct that I may apply for Canadian Citizenship, as I am a first generation born abroad (USA) to a Canadian citizen — being born after Jan 1947? Am I entitled to dual citizenship or just Canadian? What would be my advantages? I currently live in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, about 100 miles south of the Canadian border.
Thanks anyone/everyone — it’s very nice to be here.
