Please don't forget that in French (as well as Spanish), an adjective will reflect both the gender (masculine/feminin e) and number (singular/plural) of the noun or nouns modified.
#1. Francaise = she's a girl BUT if her parents came from France, I would have written: "Ils sont Français." = They (masculine plural) are French. Now if Nathalie were born in the U.S. she would have dual citizenship.
#2. Almost, because it is "ils" but the adjective must be plural = canadiens.
#3. The basic idea is the same as #1. Ils sont Anglais.
Adjectives of Nationalty:
Some have 4 forms: canadien, canadienne / canadiens, canadiennes
Now note what happens to an adjective that already ends in -s.
français, française / français, françaises
