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.

Borders Law Firm is my far the best experience I have had. After consulting and meeting with other immigration lawyers, I really felt confident with this firm. I have worked with Jenny Mao over the past year and I am happy to say that she has helped me out immensely and I am extreme grateful for not only her professionalism, but for her hard work and determination. I highly reccomend Borders Law Firm. From my experience, they are the best in the GTA.

Devika is the best. She is very knowledgeable and will always give her honest advice. She is very understanding and will put in extra effort if your situation demands so. I highly recommend her for all your immigration needs.

Devika and John were excellent. They understood how this process would change my life and helped me get to the US. John was extremely kind and thorough. When my employer in the US ended up trying to take advantage of me, they helped me transfer my visa to a new employer and had so much empathy for my situation and now I have a job in California that makes me so happy while helping others. I am beyond grateful for their kindness and service. I will be using them for any changes to my status going forward.

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.
