    Citizenship through grandparent but bypassing parent?

    The technicalities of the different citizenship laws over the years and when you or your mum were born could be worth checking if your grandfather was born in Canada (or at least in what is now the Canadian territory!) His citizenship being by naturalization, his kids already alive at the time...

    Does hiring a lawyer to handle citizenship application have any negative impact on the application

    I honestly don't know how you can equate live and lose. Where's the suffering in my post? I only said so meaning that OP respected the residency requirements, so he's definitely entitled to apply for the citizenship based on the laws of the country. You're entitled to your opinion regarding...

    Does hiring a lawyer to handle citizenship application have any negative impact on the application

    Not sure about the actual modus operandi, but there have been documented cases of fraudulent applications that had their citizenship stripped because of false residency claims. Example here ...

    Does hiring a lawyer to handle citizenship application have any negative impact on the application

    OP lived here, at the very least, 3 years of his life, and is not jumping anyone's queue if the application is made truthfully and with all the requirements respected. There are enough reasons for delays, someone else exercizing his right to apply isn't one. We're not speaking here about...

    Employment History Gaps

    1) No need to. A one week vacation between 2 jobs is standard, listing both jobs only doesn't show a gap. 2) List your branch address there. Good luck with your application :)

    Interviews are not being done at the moment. So everyone in your situation is stuck too :/

    Should I write the title on each document and put in envelop?

    No need to. Put your stuff in the order it's listed in the checklist, nothing more, nothing less.

    Physical Presence calculator with Question --- Canadian Temporary resident status.???

    Well, it's a "physical presence" calculator. Your visa dates don't matter, only the days spent here do.

    Citizenship test: Collective action required, or expect endless delays, years. Example of the effective lobbyng of people awaiting spousal sponsorship

    Yeah, protests are allowed, and there's no limit to the number of protesters. You'll need to have a mask obviously, with a 1000$ fine otherwise. Have a look here for Montréal maybe : https://spvm.qc.ca/fr/Fiches/Details/Manifestation

    Citizenship test: Collective action required, or expect endless delays, years. Example of the effective lobbyng of people awaiting spousal sponsorship

    Add to it that granting citizenship without one of the requirements of said grant is simply illegal... It's not just a simple procedural change to cope with an unprecedented situation. Unless there are actual calls for an amendment of the Citizenship Act, there's no real point (apart from...

    Are original documents required at the time of oath?

    Don't worry about it. In practice, the officer only looks at the PR card, ID and passports for 99% of applicants during the interview, during which the originals are technically required, but they will stay in your briefcase. And the oath is a formality in term of documents. Mine was a super...

    Citizenship test: Collective action required, or expect endless delays, years. Example of the effective lobbyng of people awaiting spousal sponsorship

    Unfortunately impossible without a citizenship act change. They can modify the test type, and, for example, a simple live Q&A with an officer over zoom could probably satisfy the law's requirements, but skipping it is just not happening :/

    Citizenship and Baby Sponsorship

    Also works if OP becomes a citizen after his child gets a PR. He can apply right after the oath ceremony :) Good luck!

    Citizenship and Baby Sponsorship

    For the 2nd question : no. Minor children of Canadian citizen (or minor kids applying for citizenship with their PR parents) don't have a physical presence requirement. You can apply for your kid's citizenship at the exact moment he gets his PR if you're a citizen yourself.

    Minor application : Is the child legally adopted ?

    A complete application has to be received by IRCC no later than 3 months after it was signed. In case you decide to simply wait to hear from them, and your application is sent back to you, I'm not sure you can just add a tick and send it back, you will be past the 3 months... Maybe others who...

    Please help.Explanation of passports do not cover the entire period

    Hello, Not having a valid passport during a specific period is nothing suspicious. You could go with a simple "Didn't realize the passport was expired and had no travel plans during that period", which IRCC will be absolutely fine with, but if you want to get specific, the text you wrote in...

    Citizenship test: Collective action required, or expect endless delays, years. Example of the effective lobbyng of people awaiting spousal sponsorship

    It may be "parasitic" but again, even suggesting that a conservative government could stop PRs from entering Canada, like OP did in his last long post, is at best ridiculous. Didn't happen in the past decades, and won't happen in the future. If the idea is to get the citizenship before Canada...

    child born in canada by temporary foreign worker parents

    Every kid born in Canada is Canadian, regardless of the parents' status. The only exception is when parents are foreign diplomats.
