    Default Dual citizens who hold Canadian citizenship need a Canadian passport to fly into country

    FYI. I saw this today and when I passed it on discovered a number of my friends who are dual citizens but do not have a Canadian passport and were surprised to find this out

    Dual citizens heading home for holidays need Canadian passports

    Since November, dual citizens who hold Canadian citizenship have been required to show Canadian passports if they want to fly back into the country.
    It's a side effect of the electronic authorization program used to screen people coming into the country. It can not be used by Canadians who are dual citizens so they need to have a Canadian passport to fly into the country.

    Doesn't anyone, Canadian or not, flying into the country require a passport?

    Yes but in this case it means that if you're a Canadian who also has another citizenship then you need to have a Canadian passport to get in. The passport for your other country will not work as it has in the past. I know people who only have a U.K. passport but are also Canadian citizens. This affects people like them.
