Helmut Oberlander (born 15 February 1924) is a former Canadian citizen who was a member of the Einsatzgruppen death squads of Nazi Germany in the occupied Soviet Union during World War II. Oberlander is on the Simon Wiesenthal Center's list of most wanted Nazi war criminals.[1][2]

Since 1994, the Government of Canada has made repeated attempts to revoke Oberlander's citizenship.

In July 2017 the Government of Canada used an Order in Council to strip Oberlander of his Canadian citizenship for the fourth time.[3][4]
