On July 1, 2024, Minister of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), Marc Miller, delivered a Canada Day message emphasizing the importance of celebrating freedoms while reflecting on Canadian rights and responsibilities. The minister highlighted the need to understand Indigenous Peoples’ histories and contributions, urging Canadians to actively promote reconciliation.

In his message, Minister Miller underscored the significance of acknowledging the past and present contributions of Indigenous communities to Canada. He stressed that true celebration includes a commitment to learning about and respecting the diverse cultures that make up the nation, particularly those of Indigenous Peoples.

At a special citizenship ceremony held at the Rogers Centre before a Blue Jays game, the minister praised the meaningful experience of newcomers taking their oath of citizenship. He noted that such ceremonies are not just formalities but pivotal moments that mark the beginning of new citizens’ journeys in Canada.
