    CBP records for US Citizen?

    U.S. citizens do not need and cannot get I-94s. CIC apparently made a mistake in telling you to get I-94 records, because there won't be any. He needs to file a request with CBP under the Privacy Act to request his travel records. Every request I've ever filed has been by mail, and the last...

    Nine Things You Need to Know About the Changes to Canadian Citizenship

    The intent to reside does not apply to anyone who is a Canadian citizen at the time. I have no idea why you and your lawyers think the Charter precludes Parliament from passing legislation that imposes the intent-to-reside requirement on non-Canadians, who do not have a Charter right to freedom...

    Does the different date formats from entry/exit stamps create confusion to CIC?

    Canada and the U.S. write the month using letters, anyway, like "JUN 23 2015" (U.S.) or "23 JN 2015" (Canada).

    And yet you'll still get a ton of people saying "Nuh-uh, because I don't want it!"

    Lawsuit to stop BILL C24 : Member Crimesinister

    If you'd like to point out what they're in violation of, be my guest. The idea that you, personally, are entitled to a meeting (or, really, anything short of sending them a letter containing your thoughts on the matter) before the government goes ahead with implementation of the changes, is not...

    Lawsuit to stop BILL C24 : Member Crimesinister

    This is basically a contention that Parliament is unable to change laws if it inconveniences anyone who was counting on those laws not changing. While it's a a curious argument, it's also almost certainly a losing one. The intent-to-reside clause applies exclusively to non-citizens (i.e...

    US vs Canadian citz

    All that matters is whether you intend to remain a U.S. citizen. Whether you got your U.S. citizenship by birth or by naturalization is irrelevant.

    Dual citizenship for my newborn. Us/Canada

    From the information you've given, your son will be a dual citizen automatically if born in the U.S., and will be a dual citizen if born in Canada provided that you've lived at least five years in the U.S. prior to your son's birth, and at least two of those five years were after your 14th birthday.

    And until you make your application, there's absolutely nothing stopping Parliament from removing the pathway to citizenship altogether. You do not have the rights associated with citizenship until you actually become a citizen, and there is no right to become a citizen. (Even birthright...

    It is your right to be treated impartially in accordance with the laws in effect at the time of your application. You have no right to pick the laws that were in effect at the time you got PR. The grant of citizenship is indeed a statutory privilege, and not a constitutional right.

    Said someone who obviously doesn't know any of the millions of people benefiting from the Affordable Care Act. Oh, please. The plans that people are crying about not being able to keep qualify less as health insurance and more as disaster insurance. Fine if you get hit by a bus, but utterly...

    None of these people is having their rights trampled on by the increased residency requirement. Your status in the U.S. is not Canada's problem, and Canada has no obligation to make it easier for you to move there.

    Different citizenship benefits

    You need to pay taxes because you earn income. You're not putting money in some sort of bank that rewards you with citizenship after you put in a certain amount.

    Effective date of Bill C24

    The problem is that the Canadian superiority complex applies across the board, even when it makes no sense. The idea that Canada is so specially different, especially when compared to the U.S., that you need Canadian experience when you're coming from the same time zone is just patently absurd...

    Different citizenship benefits

    Moreover, since whether it's even possible to renounce another citizenship is inherently based on what the other country is, it seems like this policy, on its face, violates Section 15 of the Charter by discriminating based on ethnicity and/or national origin. Not that they couldn't get there...

    If the cutoff date is indeed July 1, and the application is not delivered by June 30, it will arrive after the deadline, which falls on a holiday. The rules that are in force on the date they receive it are all that matters.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the cutover occurs on a holiday weekend. That would give them an extra day or two to change things.

    Effective date of Bill C24

    That is simply not true. The idea that the Governor General will promulgate regulations in ways not advised by the relevant ministry and/or the PMO (and under Harper, the PMO has a more controlling influence) goes completely against actual convention and practice. The effective date of the 4/6...

    Like hell it is. The U.S. has its problems, but you're fooling yourself if you don't think millions of people wish they were U.S. citizens. Your U.S. citizenship is not oppressing you, and it would be better if less than every single post you make here were based on that false premise.

    Effective date of Bill C24

    You seem to believe that the intent-to-reside clause refers to PR status and not factual residence in Canada. This is not really supported by any evidence. Based on the wording of C-24 and statements by the minister, if you apply for citizenship and then sell your house (or end your lease) and...
