New citizens welcomed in sky-high ceremony

October 11, 2018

Suspended more than 365 meters above downtown Toronto, six new Canadians took the oath of citizenship on the landmark CN Tower, one of the world’s tallest structures.

Canadian Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen administered the oath to the new citizens, hailing from six different countries, as they were held in cables off a 116-story-high platform known as the EdgeWalk, on the side of the CN Tower.

The tower, which soars 1,815 feet (553 meters), has hosted citizenship ceremonies before, but not one from such breathless heights, according to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada.

Canada, prides itself on the country’s multiculturalism, accepted more than 270,000 new immigrants in 2017.

“The sky is the limit with #Canadian citizenship,” tweeted the minister after the ceremony.
