You were born IN Canada - therefore it's you that will need to apply.. the part about passing on your Canadian Citizenship applies to any children YOU have

Male = a Canadian father.

Exactly. The post was directed at me and my father wasn't Canadian - but even the OP doesn't have a Canadian father, it was her mother that was born there. Hence my confusion at that statement!

Yes. You are already a Canadian citizen by descent but you need to prove this by applying for your citizenship certificate. Once received you can then use this to apply for your first Canadian passport.
