Renunciation of Canadian Citizenship

Canadian citizens who wish to become citizens of certain countries must sometimes renounce their Canadian citizenship if the other country does not allow dual citizenships. Renunciation of citizenship allows applicants who are Canadian citizens the opportunity to renounce their Canadian citizenship, affording them the opportunity to become citizens of another country.

The Renunciation of Citizenship assists applicants who decide that they want to renounce or give up their Canadian citizenship. A formal application is required to renounce Canadian citizenship and a Renunciation Certificate is granted. Once granted, applicants will lose all the rights and privileges of Canadian citizenship, including the right to travel under a Canadian passport and the right to vote.


Renunciation of Citizenship Basic Requirements

To be eligible to renounce their Canadian citizenship, applicants must:

  • Be a Canadian citizen;
  • Prove that they are or will become a citizen of a country other than Canada if the application to renounce is approved;
  • Reside outside Canada;
  • Be at least 18 years old;
  • Not pose a threat to Canada 's security; and
  • Understand the significance of renouncing Canadian citizenship.

Renunciation of Citizenship Entitlements

An applicant who is granted renunciation of citizenship will lose all the rights and privileges of Canadian citizenship and enable them to apply for citizenship of another country which prohibits dual citizenship with Canada. They will lose the right to travel under a Canadian passport, and the right to vote, and if they return to Canada as a permanent resident, they will have to go through the immigration process all over again.
