Yes.

A nation allowing dual nationality means allowing nationality of 1 or more. Usually the case is 2 countries - one your natural citizenship (birth country) and second the adopted country.

Your´s is an interesting case, but to answer - Yes you can obtain nationality of more than two countries. The problem may be paperwork a most forms only assume 1 more country.

Well.. both are My birth countries.. or like birth countries.. Since my parents are from each of these..
Paperworks indeed, in the application form there was no place inquiring about other nationalities

Senario 1:

Pick the one (you currently hold) for purpose of paperwork for Canadian Citizenship.
Keep doing the same for all three.
You will end up with all three (Canadian and two other you hold).

Senario 2:

Pick only 1 - give up the other.
You end up with 2 (Canadian and one another).

The good thing is if you have Canadian you can travel very much anywhere without a visa, unless you already have one from the likes of U.S, EU Zone, Australia, NZ, Japan, Singapore.

No.. What I meant in my previous post that if it is legal to have several.. then why give up one of the citezenships as you recommended..
So I wanted to be sure from the legal point of view what to do..
I guess I need either a lawyer or to read the canadian constitution

Cheers

I got my answer:

So I can have multiple citizenships.. knowing that my other 2 countries of origin allow also multiple citizenships
