I am a Canadian citizen born to a Canadian parent outside of Canada ( got my citizenship through my father)
Is my child a Canadian who is born outside Canada ?
If not , how to make him a Canadian ?
How long will it take if I am in Canada ? Outside Canada ?

1. No, if the child is second generation born abroad after 2009, therefor you would have to return to Canada and sponsor the child for Permanent Residence. Once the child is a PR and residing in Canada, you can, as a Canadian citizen, apply for his/her citizenship. Processing times are here: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/times/index.asp
