Default Am i eligible

Hi
I am a Canadian citizen born by a British born mother before 1983...i was given up for adoption 3 days after my birth in Canada because of my birth mothers young age at that time.i have already submitted my application before I found this wonderful forum.
Am I eligible to apply for UKM...I have my biological mothers name and name given to me at birth on my uncertified live birth registration statement that's the original birth certificate and I have my adoptive parents name on my amended birth certificate issued by the province in ontario.
I included my Canadian birth certificate that indicates my adoptive parents name and also my uncertified birth registration that indicates my birth mothers name.
my birth mathers Canadian passport because she left England at 10yrs and naturalized in canada.
my marriage certificate and my Canadian passport.
my birth mothers UK birth certificate and a cover note of explanation and also my birth mothers Canadian proof of citizenship..
please I will appreciate your input.
cheers
Jagaban

On another forum there was a similar case (but from South Africa). He, too, was adopted and successfully applied for British citizenship via UKM based on his British birth mother. So good luck with your application. Patience is key to this whole process 🍀😊

thanks so much....I submitted all photo copies of my documents no originals and non of the copies where certified hope it will be accepted and also only photo copy of my passport data page instead of all the passport pages like I read in the forum that people submit.
My British biological mothers name was indicated in my live birth registration statement while my adoptive parents name was indicated in my birth certificate issued by the province of Ontario.

If you applied by post then you need to submit original documents.

Today I received citizenship oath invite for 18th of September 2020 at British high comission Toronto making it 8 months after receiving the approval letter...no invited guest is allowed and social distancing must be adhered to because of covid 19.
