Bonus Points!

So I started talking to my immigration attorney today concerning my upcoming application for permanent residency in Canada. In the conversation I asked him about the status of our new child, who will be born in February. He told me that the new child will be Canadian, and may have dual citizenship (have to check with the US on that one). And - we will receive "5 bonus points" on our PR application for having a "relative in Canada".

Child of an American citizen is automatically an American. I don't know if you can do dual citizenship with US/Canada, but usually the kid doesn't have to choose one or the other until the age of 18.

Yes you are right. And my child will also be Canadian. It's a crazy mixed up world we live in. ;)

And as of several years before my hubby (born in Toronto to parents born in, respectively, London and Texas) hit 18, you don't actually have to renounce one. The US used to go all meanie and make you pick whether you WERE or WERE NOT American. Now the law is that, as far as the US govt is concerned, and as long as you haven't formally renounced, you're American. No being all dual and then trying to claim, "Hey! Hey! Foreign national!!" whenever it's convenient.
