A person born in any part of the British Empire, even if an alien, is a British subject by right of birth, as also is he whose father or grandfather by the father’s side is a British subject, although he be himself born in a foreign country; saving the exceptions resulting from special laws of the Empire.

The conditions prescribed by the laws of the Dominion for the naturalization of aliens are—

1. Residence in Canada during three years at least, or service during three years at least under the Government of Canada or under the Government of one of the Provinces of Canada, with the intention when naturalized to either reside in Canada, or to serve under the Government of the Dominion or under the Government of one of the Provinces of Canada;

2. Taking the oath of residence or of service and that of allegiance required by law;

3. Procuring from the proper Court with the necessary formalities, the certificate of naturalization required by law.

An alien woman is naturalized by the mere fact of the marriage she contracts with a British subject.
