Would my applyinng for permanent residence be influenced by my paternal grandfather having been born in B.C.? My paternal grandmother was also born in Quebec.

Although it's unlikely, you *could* be a Canadian citizen IF your father was born outside of Canada before 1977 and his birth was registered with Canadian officials (or in or after 1977 w/o registration), and you were born outside of Canada in or after 1977 (but before April 17, 2009), and you were under age 28 on April 17, 2009. In that case, you wouldn't need to apply for PR.

The changes to the Citizenship Act in 2009 made your father a Canadian citizen, but didn't do the same for you, unless you were already one as outlined above.
