And what is the steps ?

Hi,

from “Am I Canadian?” See if you are already a citizen:
You are probably a Canadian citizen if…
•you were born in Canada,
[...]
•you were born outside Canada after April 17, 2009, and at least one of your parents was born in Canada,
•you were born outside Canada after April 17, 2009, and at least one of your parents was naturalized in Canada before your birth, or
[...]

So, based on the information you provided,no sponsoring or applying for citizenship is required. The baby already is a Canadian citizen.

1. Yes, he can apply for proof of citizenship for the child. See: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/citizenship/proof.asp
