    Hi everyone. I have a question in regards to multiple citizenships.

    At the moment, I'm a citizen of both Australia and New Zealand. In the next 5 or 6 years, I'll probably be considering moving to Canada for a while. I was wondering, is anyone here originally an Australian citizen, and then gained dual citizenship as a Canadian and Australian citizen? Just wondering if thats possible, even if I lose my NZ citizenship.

    Thanks!

    I don't know about Canada specifically, but I know quite a few Australians (including Mumsy-dear) with dual-citizenship. It's certainly possible from our end, so long as Canada's cool about it. Of course, they might test you on your spelling before letting you in.

    And you can have a dual citizen from Canada's end, too. You're in the clear!!

    Canadian Citizen .... born & raised here.

    My father had to renew his Jamaican citizenship - even though born there, had lived in Canada over 30years, and can confirm DUAL or multi citizenship is possible.

    Check with your local Canadian Consolate or search canada site ...

    ending in .gov.ca

    As far as I've seen, Australian english is the closest in spelling/grammar to Canadian english we have. I use it Word, because Word doesn't seem to handle Canadian english.

    Our citizenships aren't terribly strict as far as I've seen, we're pretty happy to have you most of the time.

    Very dapper. Simply dashing.

    I was --> this <-- close to photoshopping your head on that "accoutrement" but proper etiquette forbade I took the liberty. ^_^

    I want to live in Canada! Maybe I can get lamina or MarkColette to marry me, at least for a few years (and only for immigration purposes of course ;)).

    If there's no quasi-consensual anal sex, then what's the point?

    One of the pesky side effects of trying to meet nice girls, is they're not so much into that as the other kind :(

    So put an ad in the paper or online like the rest of us. :) Too bad- I knew a nice girl you would love, but I hooked her up with a friend of mine and they got married.

    Quasi? You need to be committed. You're either inside, or you're completely out. ;)

    Hahah. Those replies made me laugh. Ahh thats graet. It's years away but I thought I might as well take a look at it now. Planning on doing accountacny next year and then getting my CA. Then of course moving to Canada. The future looks very exciting!
