The MaRS Centre, Auditorium
101 College Street
In partnership with Citizenship and Immigration Canada, MaRS is hosting an annual Citizenship Court as part of the community Citizenship Ceremonies Initiative developed by the Institute for Canadian Citizenship. This Institute (http://www.icc-icc.ca/), whose mission is to engage Canadians in citizenship, is a not-for-profit organization co-chaired by The Right Honourable Adrienne Clarkson and John Ralston Saul.
This year, we have 60 new Canadians taking the Oath, with as many as 40 countries represented. The Citizenship Court and reception are open to the public. Please join us in celebrating these new Canadians.
11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.: Formal Citizenship Court with an official VIP “Platform Party” consisting of the presiding judge, and special guests, speakers and entertainment.
12:30 p.m.: Upon conclusion of the proceedings, there will be a short reception to meet and celebrate with the new citizens and their families, including our now-famous giant Canadian flag cake.
