ICC Enhanced Citizenship Ceremonies mark the important milestone of citizenship with a celebration that includes the plethora of cultures and languages that constitute Canada. We invite performers of all genres to join us in welcoming the newest members of the Canadian family. All ceremonies are currently taking place virtually. 

Performance Opportunities

Representatives and Performers

All Enhanced Citizenship Ceremonies are opened by an Indigenous representative, who welcomes the newcomers and introduces them to the history of Indigenous peoples on Turtle Island. Some ceremonies also include Indigenous performers, welcoming newcomers through traditional dance or music.

Anthem Singers

Every Enhanced Citizenship Ceremony ends with a bilingual performance of O Canada. This is one of the most special parts of the ceremony as this is the first time new Canadians would be singing the Canadian National Anthem as their National Anthem. 

Guest Performers

We feature additional guest performers of many diverse genres in ceremonies, including poets, musicians, and dancers.

Guest Speakers

We invite inspirational Canadians to provide congratulatory remarks and give encouragement and advice to newcomers after they take their Oath.
