Canadian citizens who wish to become citizens of certain countries must sometimes renounce their Canadian citizenship if the other country does not allow dual citizenships. Renunciation of citizenship allows applicants who are Canadian citizens the opportunity to renounce their Canadian citizenship, affording them the opportunity to become citizens of another country.
The Renunciation of Citizenship assists applicants who decide that they want to renounce or give up their Canadian citizenship. A formal application is required to renounce Canadian citizenship and a Renunciation Certificate is granted. Once granted, applicants will lose all the rights and privileges of Canadian citizenship, including the right to travel under a Canadian passport and the right to vote.
