According to a representative of the Embassy of Finland in Ottawa, marriage to a Finnish national does not automatically confer Finnish nationality (10 June 1993). For further information on the acquisition of Finnish nationality please refer to the attached copy of the Finnish Nationality Act, which was first passed on 28 June 1968 and amended on 10 August 1984. According to the representative of the Embassy of Finland in Ottawa, this act is currently in effect (Ibid.).
Additional and/or corroborating information on the requested subject is currently unavailable to the DIRB.
