Hello Sir,

I became a Canadian citizen last year June 2018 but due to some irreconcilable differences with my wife she opted for divorce we got separated in last Sept-2019 in India.

She was also a permanent resident as both of us were landed immigrants in 2010 she didn't stay much in Canada and her Permanent residency got expired long before we got divorced she is not interested to come to Canada which is one of the reasons for our differences and

I would like to know what will happen if I remarry and I have my new wife and children will the children of my new wife automatically become Canadian citizens as I am a Canadian citizen.

Please reply to my query.
Thanks.

1. No, they will not become Canadian citizens automatically. You would have to sponsor them for permanent residence. As you are a Step parent, they could not apply for Citizenship without meeting the physical requirement of residing in Canada.
