e-2451 (Citizenship and immigration)

Initiated by karen leung from Richmond, British Columbia

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the Government of Canada

  • Foreign national tourists are giving birth in Canada solely to obtain Canadian Citizenship for their newborn children;
  • These birth tourists are intentionally using deceitful methods to bypass the legitimate immigration process, which is morally wrong; and
  • Birth tourists draw upon finite Canadian medical resources, but there are instances where they do not pay the costs associated, resulting in increased costs for Canadian taxpayers.
We, the undersigned, Canadian citizens, call upon the Government of Canada to stop granting Canadian Citizenship to those born in Canada but whose parents are not Canadian citizens.
