Use this application if you are applying for citizenship for a child under 18. The child must be a permanent resident of Canada. The child must also have at least one parent who is a Canadian citizen or who will become a citizen at the same time.
In addition, Citizenship applicants 14 years of age or older on the date of the signatures on the application must:
- be able to understand and speak basic English or French, and

Do not use this form to prove a child born outside Canada to a Canadian parent is a Canadian citizen.

You may also apply for proof of citizenship for a child born in Canada if you do not have a document showing the child has Canadian citizenship.
