Note on oral sources:
Oral sources are usually contacted when documentary sources have been exhausted. However, oral sources must agree to be quoted in a publicly available Response to Information Request. If they refuse, the Response will read "no information currently available." Contacting oral sources is also subject to time constraints; for example, there are periods of the year when academics are unavailable.
Relevant laws on citizenship.
Note on contacting Canadian diplomatic representatives serving abroad:
The DIRB must go through the CEIC's International Services Group in order to ask questions of Canadian diplomatic representatives serving abroad. The procedures for contacting Canadian missions will cause delays in responding to Information Requests. Moreover, ability to obtain information is subject to Canadian missions' resource limitations.
