The Minister of Citizenship and Immigration, Chris Alexander, will be tabling new citizenship legislation on 6 February, the first major overhaul of the Citizenship Act since the 1970s.  Some of the expected changes include giving the government the ability to strip citizenship from certain dual nationals in cases of treason or terrorism, restoring citizenship to certain “lost Canadians,” and more.  One controversial issue not expected in the legislation is a change to the rule that every child born in Canada is entitled to Canadian citizenship.
