What We Think of Bill C-6

  • April 14, 2016

Christopher Veeman, Executive Member of the CBA’s Immigration Law Section, appeared before the Standing Committee on Citizenship and Immigration to discuss the changes to Bill C-6, An Act to Amend the Citizenship Act.

The CBA supports the changes proposed in Bill C-6, many of which would return Canadian citizenship law to its state before the changes introduced by Bill C-24, the Strengthening Canadian Citizenship Act. In 2014, the CBA largely opposed the changes introduced by Bill C-24, and so in general we support reversing those changes. We also recommend additional changes to Bill C-6 to further restore or improve procedural protections in the Citizenship Act about the revocation of citizenship.
