Each year, citizenship ceremonies take place across the country on Canada Day to welcome our newest Canadians. This year, 42 citizenship ceremonies will be held across Canada on July 1.
Canada Place in Vancouver, Riding Mountain National Park near Brandon, Manitoba, Black Creek Pioneer Village in Toronto, the Old Port of Montréal, and Skmaqn-Port-la-Joye-Fort Amherst National Historic Site in Rocky Point, Prince Edward Island are just a few of the many locations hosting Canada Day special citizenship ceremonies.
Canada Day is a time to celebrate and be proud of our country. It provides a moment to reflect on how we can all be active citizens, engage with others in our communities and strengthen everyone’s sense of belonging.
Canadians are encouraged to attend a citizenship ceremony in their town or city to celebrate what it means to be Canadian: the rights we enjoy, the responsibilities we share, and the diversity that makes us strong. Each citizenship ceremony is also an opportunity for the Canadian citizens who attend to repeat the Oath of Citizenship and express their commitment to Canada.
