One really does wonder why people don't check this point out
thoroughly *before* deciding to have a baby born outside Canada.

Unless they can get the baby to Canada on visitor status, I guess the
only real solution for most people is for one parent to return to
Canada and start sponsorship process from there, while the other
parent cares for the child overseas.

An expensive and messy process at that. At least those with US born
children can probably get them to Canada on US passports. But birth
in Japan does not give Japanese citizenship as far as I know, and so
it depends on the nationality of the parents.

Default baby born outside Canada from PR parents

Many thanks to all who sent pertinent replies,
like Mr. Miller, Mr. Metcalfe, Tom, and so on.
You were really helpful.

I have one more question: me and my wife, both
landed immigrants in 2000, have a baby born
in Japan. What should be done to bring him
with us in Canada ?

Thanks,
Egi

It all depends from baby's nationality. If baby is a citizen of the country
on Canadian visa waiver program list then you can try to bring baby back
with you as a visitor and start sponsorship process. If baby requires
visitor visa and you are lucky enough to get one then the same applies. But
if baby requires visa and won't get it then you have a bigger problem - you
cannot sponsor anyone (including your own baby) if you don't reside in
Canada. You will have to return to Canada, establish your residence here and
then start sponsorship process. Note that if by any chance baby is found
medically inadmissible to Canada then there is nothing you can do - so,
going after contracts is not always worth the trouble my friend.

A slight qualification of AM s statement about medical. If your child
is found medically inadmissible and is considered a danger to public
health and safety you would have a problem, however if it was a
excessive demand situation there is an exception to the rule. See
Section 38(2) of the Act. It is highly unlikely that a baby would
constitute a danger and consequently you could dimiss the last
sentence of the posting.

But, why do we expect the immigration process to be such
cruel/ruthless, that it would not allow a new-born child to accompany
his/her "Canadian" (residents if not citizens) parents, even on
"visitor visa"?
Personally I don't think the immigration officers are like that, and
the child stands a good chance of getting a visitor visa.
