Question
hello i was wondering if you could answer a question for me  my mother was born in Canada then abandon in 1955 she was adopted by a relative in the us dose this mean i would have a claim to citizenship she died in 1997 by the way i would appreciate any info you can give thank you.

Answer
Hello Gordon;

Thank you for your question.

Canadian citizenship law has changed several times, leading to a change in the eligibility requirements for different groups. To answer your question, the rights of a child born outside of Canada to a Citizen have to be researched for the law existing then, and now. The fact that the Canadian citizen parent is not alive, may pose additional challenges.

You should approach the Consular Section of Canadian embassy for further advice related to your situation. The advantage is that they are the decision makers and may help you for free.

Should that not work, you may contact us on email@transcendconsultants.com for the same.

Hope this is useful.

Thank you and Kind Regards

Experience

Since 2002, I have been working in the field of Canadian Immigration consulting. Prior to going into own practice in late 2003, I worked for an Immigration Consulting organisation in Toronto. My practice covers various areas of economic and family class immigration into Canada. Like I say to my prospective clients, just as there are thousands of ways to find god, there are a no. (over 50) ways to gain immigration to Canada. The trick is to find out the most suitable one for each client. Nevertheless, there are some programs that are more popular. We advise clients on these as well as find innovative immigration solutions for others. I have been an active volunteer with the Canadian Association of Professional Immigration Consultants (CAPIC), since its inception in 2005. After serving the Ontario Chapter for 5 years in Communications Committee, I joined the National Board in 2010. I served as the Director - Membership on the national Board of Directors of CAPIC for a year. I recently retired from the Board of Directors of the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC), the regulatory body for Canadian Immigration Consultants, after serving for 1 year.
