The Start

My names A. (obviously just my initial), Canadian working on her dual citizenship for France to maybe be able to build a life there eventually.

I’ve applied through my father who’s s a citizen of France but living in Canada.

France has always felt like home and in recent years, I’ve had the distinct feeling that i’m supposed to be there.

It’s about time I start the process to be a part of something great don’t you think?

Step 1- Apply for  Dual Citizenship
I’ve googled and googled, and googled to try and find information on a french canadian trying to get her dual citizenship and no hits!

I’ve read stories but none like mine.

I’ve found it complicated (not to mention frustrating) so why not try to help someone who may be trying to accomplish the same thing.

Hence, why I created A Dream to Paris.

A place to document the smiles, frustrations and the most of all, the good times.


“You’ve got to have a dream, if you want to have a dream come true.”

If you have ANY questions about moving, about apartment rentals, insurance companies, feel free to ask!

  1. I might also add…I got really, really tired of people just telling me to marry a Frenchman for my citizenship! SO I suppose my blog was built of of my need to document just WHY that option is not easier! LOL.

  2. Awesome! I was in a similar situation a few years ago. My father is a Spanish citizen living in the U.S. and I applied for dual citizenship through the Spanish consulate in The States. I was approved and moved to the U.K. after that for a year! Good luck!!!

  3. Hi Annie, best of luck with your citizenship, sorry I can’t personally offer any advice, but here in the Alps there are thousands of folks from all over the world, living and working. I recommend signing up to a forum called chamsocial and see if folks here can help you?! In the mean time, love your blog and you should put the Alps on your list of places to visit – not far from Paris, yet very very different & beautiful!
    Bonne chance!

  4. Thanks for choosing to follow One Quality, the Finest. I’m also a Canadian who wants to live permanently in France some day. My parents are both from Northern Ireland, and that may be the way in for me. Good luck!
