The Wider Image: Canada's newest citizens
At citizenship ceremonies across the country,Ênew Canadians began a fresh chapter in their livesÊlast monthÊin a land they chose for what they saw as its diversity, safety and opportunity. Ninety people, hailingÊfrom 23 countries, became citizens weeks before Canada celebrates its 150th anniversary on July 1. Even as the United States under President Donald Trump becomes more closed off, Canada's arms remain open. After Trump issued a travel ban order in January, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tweeted that his country welcomes all fleeing war and persecution. Since January, nearly 3,500 asylum seekers have entered Canada illegally from the United States. In June, Canada launched a fast-track visa for highly skilled workers, seeking to take advantage of the tougher U.S. immigration environment. REUTERS SEARCH "CANADA FACES" FOR THIS STORY.
