Check out this handy infographic that details how Canada is streamlining its process for revoking citizenship. Under the new law enacted through bill C-24 in 2014, anyone who is a citizen but was either a) not born in Canada or b) was born in Canada but also holds citizenship in another country (dual citizens) could potentially have their citizenship revoked.
