In Committee from the House of Commons - Citizenship and Immigration - June 2, 2014


The committee begins its clause-by-clause review of Bill C-24, which proposes changes to the Citizenship Act. The bill will make the first comprehensive reforms to the Act since 1977. Measures include changing the citizenship residence requirements, ensuring that applicants aged 14 to 64 meet language and knowledge requirements, and allowing the government to revoke the Canadian citizenship of dual nationals convicted of treason or terrorism or have engaged in armed conflict with Canada. Critics have raised concerns about the constitutionality of some measures. (June 2, 2014)
