Re: Canadian Citizendship for baby born in USA

Could we then sponsor baby for PR? What restictions would we have moving back to Canada.

Also what happens if we are citizens by time of birth, or if one parent is and one isn't?

Re: Canadian Citizendship for baby born in USA

Re: Cashing a UK cheque from Canada?

Fees will be high and you'll likely get screwed on the exchange rate.
