Message from the president: Save the date for Community Citizenship Ceremony on May 30

York University President and Vice-Chancellor Mamdouh Shoukri issues the following invitation to the University community:

In partnership with the Institute for Canadian Citizenship (ICC) and Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), York University will be hosting a special Canada 150 Community Citizenship Ceremony. I invite you to join us on May 30, 2017 to mark Canada 150 by celebrating our newest Canadian citizens.

York will be joined by 40 new Canadians and their families, as well as special guest speaker and York alumna Helena Jaczek, Ontario Minister of Community and Social Services and MPP, Oak Ridges-Markham.

The Citizenship Ceremony takes place at 10:15am in the Sandra Faire and Ivan Fecan Theatre in the Accolade East Building, and will be followed by a reception in the CIBC Lobby.

If you are able to attend the celebration on campus, please RSVP.

I encourage you to be a part of this unique opportunity to celebrate Canada’s diversity, as well as Canada 150. I look forward to seeing you there.
