Citizenship Act (the Act)

New provisions allow Canadian citizenship to be revoked for certain reasons. This has sparked growing concern for Canadian citizens residing outside of Canada. It is unclear how the new Act will be enforced, the Act uses the wording “may” suggesting there may be leeway for discretionary decisions. The citizenship process has also been reduced down to a one step process (opposed to the previous three steps) raising questions about Canadian borders and nationalism.  This shift in citizenship processing appears to be an economic decision (reducing the amount of administrative steps and procedures) rather than one with a legal or practical basis.
