US Citizens in Canada and Dual Nationality Issue

Will I be able to apply for Canadian citizenship, without fear of losing my US citizenship?


I am-
An United States Citizen
A Canadian Permanent Resident (by marriage)

When the time comes will I be able to apply for Canadian citizenship, without fear of losing my US citizenship?

From what I've read I technically should lose it, because I am applying for it, instead of getting it by formality.... I would appreciate any assistance.

Thanks.



Rachel.


Answer:



U.S. Citizens in Canada | Dual Nationality



A U.S. citizen may acquire foreign citizenship by marriage.U.S. law does not mention dual nationality or require a person to choose one citizenship or another. Also, a person who is automatically granted another citizenship does not risk losing U.S. citizenship. However, a person who acquires a foreign citizenship by applying for it may lose U.S. citizenship. In order to lose U.S. citizenship, the law requires that the person must apply for the foreign citizenship voluntarily, by free choice, and with the intention to give up U.S. citizenship.
