New Citizens in Winnipeg Connect with Performers


Version français.


Royal Aviation Museum of Western Canada, Winnipeg, Manitoba


Citizenship Week

New Citizens were able to celebrate their Canadian citizenship surrounded by the unique aircraft on display at the Royal Aviation Museum of Western Canada. On May 26, 2023, ICC continued Citizenship Week as we hosted an incredible ceremony filled with love, joy and excitement. The Museum set the tone for the stories shared among new citizens and their guests as an inspirational space that highlights bold achievements and acts of courage.

Citizenship Judge Suzanne Carrière administered the oath of citizenship and celebrated 33 individuals from 11 countries as Canadian citizens.

ICC’s Enhanced Citizenship Ceremonies shine a spotlight on performers from the community to add more memorable moments throughout the ceremony. The Sadler Sisters performed the national anthem during a ceremony earlier this year in Winnipeg. And on May 26th, they also preformed as EAK Trio with an original song entitled, Grow as we go. The lyrics that struck the heartstrings of the new Canadian citizens were:

I don’t know who we’ll become
I can’t promise it’s not written in the stars
But I believe that when it’s done
We’re gonna see that it was better
That we grew up together

Every experience in a lifetime creates an opportunity to learn. Each lesson shows the strength, wisdom and bravery that people have and prepares each individual for what comes next. This personal development builds space for people to shape their lives as they wish. While navigating these challenges, it is important to remember that you are not alone. Your community stands with you – supporting your lows and celebrating your highs.

With ICC’s Enhanced Citizenship Ceremonies, established Canadians have the ability to connect with new citizens building stronger community relationships. If you are interested in volunteering as a roundtable host at one of our ceremonies, please contact
