Can Canadian citizens legally immigrating to the U.S. Keep their Canadian Citizenship with their new American one too?

I plan to immigrate to the US soon. I don't really want to give up my Canadian Citizenship. Can I have a Duel Canadian-American citizenship when I am granted citizenship from the US government?

That's great I was not quite sure. I want to be American but my parents want me to stay Canadian. So I'm happy I can be both! Thanks!

If the Canadian government allows an individual to have dual citizenship, then you can have citizenship for both Canada and the United States. You should consult with the Canadian embassy and confirm whether it is possible to have dual citizenship.

The laws may have changed and you will have to confirm this but: dual citizenship in the U.S. is recognized when a child of an American is born in another country; that child would have dual citizenship.
