Canadian Museum for Human Rights, Winnipeg, Manitoba


National Flag of Canada Day

On February 15, 2023, we were honoured to host an in-person Enhanced Citizenship Ceremony at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg, Manitoba. As the world’s first museum dedicated to human rights, the venue highlights respect and compassion while encouraging meaningful conversations.

Citizenship Judge Suzanne Carrière administered the oath of citizenship and welcomed 48 individuals from 9 countries as Canadian citizens.

The ICC’s enhanced ceremonies featured our signature roundtable discussion between new citizens and their guests. This is inspired by Indigenous Talking Circles that traditionally create spaces of inclusiveness and equality. The heartwarming event brought members together over shared experiences. Many families who were once separated from their loved ones are now able to be reunited in Canada. While planning for their future, families can stay connected to their roots and culture while not feeling the isolation that is often found in the process of creating a new home in a strange place.

“‪I would like to thank Canada for uniting our family together and letting us live a life as a family, which we couldn’t do in India since my dad was always travelling for work.”

With ICC’s Enhanced Citizenship Ceremonies, established Canadians have the ability to connect with new citizens building stronger community relationships.
