I am a Canadian citizen. My wife is in India. We recently have a baby girl born in India. I am currently in Canada. How can I apply for my daughter’s Canadian citizenship? Also, I need to sponsor my wife. Where I will send application to sponsor my wife?
A child born outside Canada to a Canadian parent and meeting certain requirements is a Canadian citizen. However the child will not possess a birth certificate issued by a Canadian governmental authority and for proof of Canadian citizenship, the child will need to obtain a Canadian citizenship certificate. It is applicable when at least one parent:
was born in Canada, or
became a naturalized Canadian citizen before the child was born
