Good day all,

I have a quick question.

I was born in Saskatchewan Canada and I am sponsoring my spouse.  We are both in Thailand and have been here for a year and a half.  I am filling out my sponsorship form and the question says if my claim to citizenship is through descent, yes or no.  The example they provide in the guide does not seem to fit if you were born and raised in Canada.  Does anyone know if I should check off yes or no to this question?

Thank you in advance for your attention!

You have citizenship by descent if you were born abroad by Canadian parents.

Yes, exactly. You were born in Canada, so the answer to that question is "No" in your case.

You have citizenship by descent if you were born abroad by Canadian parents.

that's quite tricky question. I think by decent means if you got citizenship being a child of a Canadian citizen.

Wow, that's interesting. Here I figured it would be "yes" following the definition of "descent". He's a citizen because his parents are, so therefore, it was descended.

Well then. Great question hycore!! You just helped me out huge as well. I didn't realize it only applied to Canadians born abroad.
