About this Event

The Institute for Canadian Citizenship, the Ministry of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship and MaRS have partnered to host Canada’s first cross-country virtual citizenship ceremony! The ceremony, taking place on July 1, will be a celebration of Canadian resilience and unity, and an opportunity for all Canadians to come together to celebrate and welcome our newest citizens.

Whether you’ve been here 5 weeks, 5 years, or your ancestors have been here for 5000 years — we invite you to join us on Canada Day to celebrate a vibrant and colourful Canada.

The celebration will be livestreamed on YouTube and will include:

–  interviews with new citizens who are frontline workers during COVID-19

–  a performance by Indigenous drumming duo, Warrior Women

–  a special appearance by the Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, Marco Mendicino

–  a greeting by Prime Minister Trudeau!

In such an important moment, the simple act of celebrating with Canada’s newest citizens can send a powerful message of inclusion from coast to coast to coast. Register to get your link and join us Canada Day at 2:00 p.m. EDT.
