Default Baby born in Canada - work permit

Can someone tell me what happens if we have a baby in Canada whilst I'm employed under a work permit with no PR status. Does the baby gain Canadian citizenship, entitling us to have PR automatically, or is the baby British until we gain PR?

We are not trying to fast track PR but we would like another baby which may tie-in with working in Canada.

Baby born in canada will get canadian nationality automatically by birth .but it will not tends towards ur PR right now. He/She can sponsor u after getting an age of years 18 under family sponsor ship category.

baby will be Canadian but this does not affect your application, it will not speed it up. we have just had a baby here, on work permits, and are still waiting for our PR, which will be 2 years in the spring. it actually delayed it as I couldn't do x-ray until after birth.
