You can ignore the co signer bit. Did you get the guide to completing the forms? It's quite simple if you follow that. It explains the info they need, or not.

hey,

yeah i have the guide, but on form IMM 5540. the sponsor (my fiance) has to fill this one out. but some of the questions ask if you are a naturalized canadian or permanet resident and if so when did you become a resident etc...

she's canadian and was born in canada so what answer do we put? her birth date?

She should be naturalized if she's a citizen. If you need a date then out her birthday

Hi, I am going through the same process with my fiancée sponsoring me. She ticked no to being a naturalized Canadian or perm resident as she is a Canadian citizen. Only tick yes if your fiancée was not born Canadian.
We are still waiting on sponsor approval though it was received on 12th March so hopefully won't be too much longer.
I am 20 mins from you in Chilliwack so if you need to pick my brains (won't take long 😄) let me know
Regards, Ste

If you are born here and entitled to citizenship then you have it from/by birth:

http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/resourc...itizenship.asp

Such a person is not a naturalized citizen.

The form sounds a tad confuzing since I filled mine in 26 years ago....

Good luck...AS

If you're a citizen of the UK (or any other country that does not require temporary residence visas (TRV)), they no longer place visa counterfoils in your passport, as per this Operational Bulletin from December last year.

airbornesapper is right..is she was born in Canada she is a citizen by birth. You are only a Naturalized Canadian citizen if you immigrated to canada then applied for citizenship.

You are not a co-signer. So your answer to that question would be no.
