Having A Baby

Postby Cordero » Sat Jul 30, 2016 5:49 pm

my wife and I have been in Canada since last year, initially as on a student visa and worker visa and now both of us have working permits that expire in August. My wife is now pregnant and we are expecting our child in June. My question is would our child be a Canadian citizen and could we apply for an extension of our permits so as to take care of our child, and will having a child help our plan to apply for permanent residence in any way.

Having A Baby

Dear Tyler,

Any child born in Canada is automatically a Canadian citizen, regardless of the parents' immigration status(with the sole exception of children of foreign diplomats). However, having a child in Canada does not confer any special privileges on foreign nationals who happen to be visiting, studying or working in Canada. Unless there were some extenuating circumstances that required special care of the child, having a baby in Canada will not justify an extension of a work permit. You may have other options that could help in getting an extension, but this can only be determined after a personal assessment of your academic and professional qualifications and your spouse's academic and professional qualifications.

You may wish to check with Service Canada however about any child social benefits that you may be entitled to as long as you are in Canada. Be sure to examine the costs of delivering your child in Canada. Will your insurance company cover the health care costs? And will the province automatically cover your child under its medicare program?

If you are planning on applying for permanent residence, be sure to consider the options that will get you that status the fastest if you are qualified in more than one category.

You may find the following links helpful in getting your child's proof of citizenship and a Canadian passport:
