I am most likely a Canadian Citizen, but I can't prove it.

Thanks for clarifying. Always good to get advice from someone who actually has experience of the process. Most appreciated.
Hi Flanagaj. How are you getting on with your application? - as i have a similar scenario where i am the grandchild of a Crown servant. I've applied for my grandfather's military records by Library and Archives Canada say it could take 2 years! Have you got yours yet and have you applied for proof of citizenship yet? Many thanks

Hi,
I’m afraid I cannot provide an update as I submitted my application last year and I have so far heard nothing.

After further research I eventually was able to obtain a birth certificate for my grandfather so hoping I submitted enough information.

given the current situation I have no idea when I’ll hear back.

Do you mind me asking if the application you submitted was for the military records or the citizenship? And if the latter, what did you use to prove your grandparent's Crown service? Thanks

Sorry, I reread my post after posting and realised I wasn’t very clear. I obtained my grandfather’s military service certificate (not detailed records) in March 2020. It just stated my grandfather was in the RCAF and his service number. The given service number was on my late father’s birth certificate, which I hope is enough evidence to prove my grandfather was based in the UK during 1944.

I submitted the actual citizenship application in early October 2020, but doubt I’ll hear back this year.

good luck!
