There is no better day than to be a proud Canadian than on Canada’s 150th Birthday!
We went to the Civic Centre and took part in the Reaffirmation Citizenship Ceremony where we had a chance to recite the oath. This is something I always wanted to do but being born in Canada, I never thought I would have the opportunity.
Then, I find out on July 1st, across the city, they were having four locations holding a citizenship oath ceremony and all were welcomed to participate! I knew right there and then I had to experience it for myself – I would have regret it if I didn’t get to be part of it especially on Candda150!
I swear that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to His Majesty King George the Sixth, His Heirs and Successors, according to law, and that I will faithfully observe the laws of Canada and fulfill my duties as a Canadian citizen. > View video of today’s ceremony.
