15:09 2024

Amandeep Hayer, a citizenship lawyer practicing in Langley, BC, provides critical insights following a landmark ruling by the Ontario Superior Court of Justice at the end of December. The court’s decision, declaring the second-generation cut-off rule in Canada’s Citizenship Act unconstitutional, resonates with Hayer’s 2020 call for a more inclusive citizenship policy.

Insights into the Ontario Court Ruling

The ruling challenges existing citizenship laws that limit automatic citizenship for children born abroad to Canadian parents also born outside Canada. Hayer’s 2020 article, relevant now more than ever, underlines the need for these laws to evolve, highlighting the importance of adapting to our globalized society.

Advocating for a Fair Approach

Hayer recommends that in the second and subsequent generation be re-written to be a model similar to the U.S., considering parent’s ties to the country in citizenship by descent decisions. This could modernize Canadian citizenship law, making it fairer and more reflective of current Canadian values.

A Leading Voice in Legal Discussions

Amandeep Hayer, a prominent figure in the legal community, both provincially and nationally, plays a crucial role in the national dialogue about citizenship law reform. His well-informed, compassionate perspective addresses the challenges faced by Canadians under existing policies.

Promoting National Discourse

Moving into 2024, Hayer’s understanding of Canadian citizenship laws and potential reform paths is invaluable. His leadership and thoughtful analysis are crucial in addressing this important area of national policy.
