Celebrating Citizenship on Canada Day

CIC News
Published: July 1, 2005

For Canadians, the beginning of July is marked by our national holiday: Canada Day. Across the country people spend July 1st relaxing, celebrating, and being with family and friends.

Some 1500 permanent residents, who had made Canada their home over the past few years, proudly joined in the celebration with ceremonies of their own. Citizenship ceremonies were arranged across the country to welcome hundreds of new Canadians and to provide an opportunity for everyone to celebrate Canada together. Canadians mark July 1 each year as the day the country was formed. In the years to come, many people will also be marking July 1, 2005 as the day they officially became Canadian citizens.
