Welcome to the FAQ website covering document topics in Canada.
My father was born in England in the 1950’s, and moved to Canada in the 1980’s – he still has his passport (expired) and never renounced his citizenship. I am a Canadian citizen by birth (born in the 1990’s), and am wanting to apply for dual-citizenship – my question is, am I qualified as a British citizen where I am able to apply for a passport or do I need to apply to be a citizen, and then get a passport?
As long as your parents were married at your birth, you can apply for your UK passport right now, you do not need to Register as a British Citizen first. (If your parents were not married you have to register.)
