Immigration, Refugees, Citizenship Canada (IRCC) changes the definition of “parent” for determining citizenship by descent.The interpretation of “parent” for the purposes of determining citizenship by descent under subsection 3(1) of the Citizenship Act now includes children born abroad in the first generation who have a legal parent–child relationship at birth but no biological link to the Canadian parent. This new interpretation of parent will allow applicants who may have otherwise been refused for lack of biological linkage to their Canadian parent(s) to be approved under section 3 of the Citizenship Act based on a legal parent–child connection at birth.

I had a very good experience with Borders Law Firm. Though my PR file was a bit complicated, Brendan, Andres and Devika worked extremely well in a thorough and perfect manner. I was so happy when my PR application was processed in a record-breaking 45 days, thanks to the meticulous handling of my case by the lawyers.
