I'm getting some documents ready before basic.

The site states that I require a birth certificate.

I was born out of Canada and I have my certificate of citizenship. Is the certificate enough? Or do I need to visit the consulate to request for my birth certificate?

Thanks!

For clarification, you've already completed the application process and you're waiting to head to basic, correct? If so, bring a copy of the document you would've needed when you applied. (Do not bring the original.) If all you needed was proof of Canadian citizenship before, that's all you should need now. Keep everything in a folder and keep it in an area of your suitcase where it will be somewhat protected and undisturbed. (I brought all my documents with me also, but never needed them at any point. However, it was still useful having copies in good condition at different points afterwards.)
