Canada Citizenship
The Canadian government and its department of immigration are bringing about some changes in the country’s Citizenship program through (or, by way of) a new act titled ‘Strengthening Canadian Citizenship Act’. These new changes (or, measures) in the new act (Bill C24), the Strengthening Canadian Citizenship Act,  it has been stated by the Canadian administration are designed to honour and recognize those citizens who are military personnel and who have served Canada, be they citizens or only permanent residents of the country.

The primary benefit that is intended to be provided or passed on to these armed forces and retired armed forces, be they citizens or permanent residents of the country, is that the children of these personnel will have quicker access to Canadian citizenship. The bill also states that the aforesaid benefit will be available to those who are residing abroad too. There are some other related aspects to the same bill which stipulate that those who have citizenship of both Canada and some other nation, but who are convicted of major criminal offences such as ‘high treason, terrorism, and offences related to spying (depending on the severity of the sentence given/awarded to them)’, or those who wage a war against Canada will have their citizenship revoked. And also, permanent residents who commit these aforesaid and similar acts will also be barred from applying for citizenship of Canada.

It is also being stated that these above mentioned changes are intended to honour or will honour those citizens or permanent residents of Canada whose sacrifices are of a high order (i.e. serving in the military) and that the bill intends to recognize and honour them accordingly. And also, with this new bill (Bill C-24), Canada joins USA and Australia which have similar legislation and laws to honour those who serve their respective countries in uniform.
