Thirty-eight new Canadians were sworn in as Canadian citizens at The Aud on January 1st prior to our New Year’s Day game against the Peterborough Petes. Local member of Parliament Raj Saini and members of the Kitchener Rangers Board of Directors welcomed the new Canadians as they took their Oath of Citizenship. The ceremony was held in partnership with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada and the Kitchener Rangers.
New Canadian, Thu Ly, moved to Canada from Vietnam and was excited for the opportunity to take his oath here at The Aud.
“It was a great experience. I am excited to be a Canadian,” said Ly.
Ly is currently enrolled at Conestoga College and is working towards an Automotive Service Technician Certificate.
The 38 new Canadians sang along with the crowd and Danielle Guistini-Crouse and Joanna Guistini-Wilkinson as they performed the national anthem for the first time as Canadian Citizens.
