Will you lose citizenship of your native country if you acquire Canadian citizenship?

According to Canadian law, One can be both a Canadian citizen and a citizen of their native country at the same time. Be that as it may, a few nations will not allow you to hold their citizenship on the off chance that you become a Canadian resident. The department or government office of your other nation of citizenship can disclose to you whether this concerns you. If you apply for Canadian citizenship, is there still the need to submit the physical presence calculator along with the travel journal submission?
