  Hi all
I successfully ´landed´ in Canada this year - yipeee!! - and have come back to the UK to tie up some affairs and save a bit more money before the move - I am keen to launch my own business over there.

Before going back to Canada permanently mid 2015, I will be getting married then begin the spousal application etc. once I arrive.

I was just wondering - if I fall pregnant during this period, is it ok for me to give birth in the UK and come over to Canada or should I give birth in Canada to ensure that my child has automatic legal status in Canada?

Thank you in advance
Ms London

OK strange word.

Give birth wherever you desire and be happy until.....

If you give birth in England your child will be a UK citizen.

Give Birth in Canada and your child will be a Canadian.

Now if you choose the UK option you will have to sponsor your child to Canada and as a PR you will have to be residing in Canada to do that.

I think you answered your own question:

"should I give birth in Canada to ensure that my child has automatic legal status in Canada? "

Yes, if Canada is your future, you should have your child there, if possible. Going through the sponsorship process is a hassle that can be avoided in your case.

Roy is partially right.
If you give birth in England your child will be a UK citizen".

Not true. EU citizen derive their citizenship through family. You can be born in the UK and not be a UK citizen. If one of the parents is English, then yes, he/she will be a UK citizen. But even if the child is born outside of United Kingdom. If one of the parents still a UK citizen, he/she will become a UK citizen so the place of birth for UK citizenship is pretty much irrelevant.

"Give Birth in Canada and your child will be a Canadian"
That is correct!

The easiest way would be to have the child born in Canada so you avoid the sponsorship, fees and delay but again, even if that is the case, it is not a big deal as long as you follow the paper work and rules.

Thank you for your responses - really useful.
DocD - I am a British citizen and so is my partner so citizenship for our child would not be a problem.
