Pearson International Airport is the front doorstep to Canada for immigrants from around the world.
They get their first impressions of their new country as they arrive at the Malton airport.
So, it’s only natural that the airport should be chosen as the site of a citizenship ceremony today that will see 100 people from more than 38 countries sworn in as Canadians.
It’s the first time a citizenship court ceremony has ever been held at Pearson airport.
At 1 p.m., Citizenship Judge Mina Yung-Fung will preside over the special ceremony, which is being co-hosted by Citizenship and Immigration Canada and the Greater Toronto Airports Authority, which operates Toronto Pearson.
The ceremony takes place at area F in Terminal 1 on the arrivals level.
