  • Happy 150th Birthday, Canada!

    Special “Canada Day” celebrations were held on July 1, 2017, as Canadians commemorated the 150th anniversary of Canada’s confederation. All across the country, Canadians turned out by the thousands to watch parades, view fireworks and enjoy a variety of festivities with family and friends.

     

    In Canada’s national capital of Ottawa, approximately 25,000 people gathered on Parliament Hill, many dressed in red and white (i.e., the colors of the country's iconic "maple leaf" flag), to listen to speeches by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Prince Charles, and to be entertained by Bono and The Edge from the U2 rock bank.

     

    During his speech in Ottawa, Prince Charles declared, “Ladies and gentlemen, we should be clear and proud that we are celebrating a country that others look to for example” and described Canada as “An example of fairness and inclusion; of always striving to be better.”

     

    Canadian citizenship ceremonies also took place in communities across the country as part of the Canada Day celebrations. For example, 150 Canadian permanent residents became new citizens of Canada in a ceremony held outside of Ontario’s Legislature in Toronto on July 1, 2017.

     

    Approximately 300,000 people from countries around the world immigrate to Canada each year as permanent residents, and one of the many benefits is the option to become a Canadian citizen.
