My grandchildren are American citizens and I want to submit an application for citizenship by heritage. My daughter (their mother) is a naturalized citizen but I was born in Ontario. Are they still eligible for citizenship based on my heritage or does it only work if the parent is Canadian? If it makes a difference, their mother has been a citizen for nearly all her life.

Hello,

According to my understanding of the situation you described. If your daughter is Canadian by naturalization, in this case it would be more logical she submits an application for Canadian citizenship certificate for her children.

Based on the IRCC website:

You’re likely a Canadian citizen if you
