wouldn't get it on the spot (they wouldn't throw a passport at you )

but, your daughter will be entitled to one yep. need to register her birth, apply for birth certificate (can do this in one go but this isn't often told) and then apply for the passport, might take a couple of months.

bit of paperwork to do first! depends on the province but in Alberta you register the birth at the hospital, apply for birth cert. 3 weeks later, wait for SIN number and then apply for passport. passport took a week. bingo, baby is Canadian!

The baby is Canadian from the moment of birth, it's just the documentary proof of this that takes time.

In New Brunswick, you fill out the forms at the hospital and they look after sending the info to Service N.B. In a few weeks you get your child’s birth certificate in the mail. Don’t need a social insurance number to apply for a passport here…All you do is take the birth certificate and your photo id to the passport office along with the completed application and required photos. You can either pay more to have the passport issued within a day or two or pay the regular fee to have it issued within a few weeks.

Other thing is, once you have the birth cert. depending on what country you and your wife are from, you may be able to have the baby added into your passport for travel purpose.

I also have a question about babies born in Canada.

I am Canadian and my girlfriend is american If she were to become pregnant would she be covered since she is having my baby? If not, is there something I could do so she could be covered?

Did a search on CIC and didn't find what I'm looking for other than sponsoring common law.

Thanks.

No, you don't get citizenship by being the parent of a canadian citizen (i.e. as the mother of your theoretical canadian child). You'd need to sponsor her as spouse/common-law.

The medical expences for labour and delivery are only covered if the female has medicare. One suggestion though would be that your girl friend enter Canada on a visitor’s permit and then apply to medicare (some provinces have a 3 month waiting period so you would want to do it ASAP).

Visitors are not eligible for medicare in most provinces.

A lot of countries are doing away with that now and the child must have his/her own passport
