Hello Folks,
My OH have had numerous arguements regarding this topic
I was born in Canada and Hubby was born in England.
He says that I am not a true canadian because I left canada when I was 7.
He was born in England and moved to Canada when he was 6 months old???
basically how would you determine this???

You need to check the laws relating to the year of your birth. Have you applied for a Canadian passport?

You should have Canadian citizenship but laws change over the years. I half remember something about Canadian/US duals being changed a few years back.

You are Canadian. Even if you were born in England and never lived in Canada, but one of your parents is Canadian, you are still Canadian. ;)

Hi Nick, no problems there LOL, we both have dual passports.
Its quite funny because Hubby and I got into a debate about it(after I had a few drinkies)!! LOL and I just wondered if others felt the same. Ie, is it where you are born or where you grew up
