I am a citizen of another country. Will I lose that citizenship if I become a Canadian?

Perhaps. Under Canadian law, a Canadian can be a citizen of another country as well. Some countries, however, will not let you keep their citizenship if you become a Canadian citizen. The consulate or embassy of your other country of citizenship can let you know whether this applies to you.
