Canadian Citizenship Ceremony at Tropicana

Tropicana Community Services is so excited to collaborate with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada and the Ontario Black History Society to host a special citizenship ceremony in honour of Black History Month tomorrow at 9:30am (guests arriving at 8:00am)

Canada is lucky to have a significant population of citizens who have originated from all over the world.  These global citizens bring with them expertise in a variety of fields and they contribute to the rich tapestry of cultures that Canada has to offer. 

To be eligible to become a Canadian citizen, you must:

  • Be a permanent resident
  • Have lived in Canada for 3 out of the last 5 years
  • Have filed your taxes, if you need to
  • Pass a test on your rights, responsibilities and knowledge of Canada
  • Prove your language skills

As Canadian citizens they will have access to restricted jobs, the right to vote and run for political office and the ability to travel with a Canadian passport.  Congratulations to everyone who will be getting their citizenship tomorrow.  We are so grateful that you have decided to make Canada your home!
