Dual Citizenship

Canada and the UK accept dual citizenship (also called “dual nationality”). A person may hold both citizenships and can carry both British and Canadian passports if they so desire.

Canadians will not lose their Canadian citizenship by taking another nationality. 

Additional information about travelling as a dual citizen can be found on the Travel.gc.ca website.
