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.
