I witnessed a Citizenship Ceremony in Toronto when my husband became a Canadian. I was so moved by the experience that I found myself in tears. Born in Canada, I took my citizenship for granted until I started to travel and live abroad in developing countries. I may complain about my country, but the ceremony reminded me how very fortunate I was to be Canadian.
The Institute for Canadian Citizenship makes some of the ceremonies very special. The next one is at Trinity College on January 21. I hope to be there to greet people who want to become Canadian. The ceremony is open to the public if space is available. There’s more information on my calendar www.TorontoMulticulturalCalendar.com.
