The Canadian Citizenship Act (French: Loi sur la citoyenneté canadienne; effective 1947–1977), S.C. 1946, c. 15, is an Act of the Parliament of Canada which properly created the concept and status of Canadian citizenship in Canada, and defined who are Canadian citizens, separate and independent from the status of the British subject (which then came to be abolished in principle by the British Nationality Act 1948). The Act was replaced on 15 February 1977 by the Canadian Citizenship Act, 1976, now known as the Citizenship Act.
