Citizenship Week - October 9-15, 2017

In the past 10 years, Canada has welcomed over 1,750,000 proud new Canadians. Each year, in October, we take a week to reflect on and celebrate the rights and responsibilities all Canadians citizens share.

Citizenship Week is a great opportunity to welcome new Canadians. Attend a Citizenship ceremony or organize a reaffirmation ceremony in your community, your place of work or your school!
