This year’s Canada Day celebration at Fort Malden was extra special for 35 people who became new Canadian citizens.

The ceremony was presided over by Clerk of the Court Dan Fanelli and special guest Dr. Bryan Walls, an author and member of the Order of Canada. Walls led the group as they recited the oath in both English and French and then Fanelli gave them each a certificate, officially making them Canadians.

The town of Amherstburg and the Immigration office also put together a small gift for each family, including a food voucher and a pass for the National Parks of Canada.
