If you have given up/renounced your Canadian citizenship, can you get it back at some point later? If yes, what is the procedure?

Canadian government website:
Note that to be eligible to restore your Canadian citizenship you have to be in Canada as a Permanent Resident.

Or at least; not without qualifying from scratch (including getting a visa, establishing residency, applying for citizenship after several years etc)
Generally though if you renounce your citizenship, you're not particularly welcome back in the country.

You would have to qualify to apply for immigration (PR) under then-current rules & follow all immigration procedures from scratch. Whether you would be approved for & receive any visa to immigrate is doubtful if you previously renounced.

You'd start at the beginning by seeing if you can either obtain a Canadian work visa or receive the sponsorship of a Canadian citizen immediate family member. The CIC will at some point question why you abandoned your citizenship (considered one of the most valuable in the world) so you'll have to have a pretty good answer prepared.

You would have to qualify to migrate like any other immigrant....
