Every year, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) celebrates Citizenship Week, which commemorates Canada’s new citizens and what it means to be a Canadian.
Today, the Honourable Sean Fraser, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship announced the launch of Citizenship Week, which will run from May 22nd to May 28th, 2023. The Minister will be attending citizenship ceremonies in Halifax, Nova Scotia and Vancouver, British Columbia.
Canada is set to welcome thousands of new Canadians as citizens. Citizenship ceremonies are a meaningful experience for the individuals reaching this significant milestone, one that affords all the rights and responsibilities of being a Canadian.
Everyone is invited to celebrate Citizenship Week by attending citizenship ceremonies taking place this week across Canada. Canadians may also join the livestream from Halifax on May 24th. IRCC has been working to modernize their services and has made important strides when it comes to citizenship through online testing, virtual citizenship ceremonies and online application trackers.
