Updated Citizenship Guide

A letter from the Department of Citizenship and Immigration Canada directs my attention to recent changes in the Citizenship Guide. Thoroughly revised earlier this year, it has been given an additional brush up:

  • The Diversity in Canada section now includes the fact that gays and lesbians in Canada enjoy the full protection of the law and have access to civil marriage.
  • Forced marriage now appears in the list of cultural practices that are not acceptable n this country.
  • Laura Secord and Agnes Macphail make their debut.
  • There’s more information about the War of 1812, whose bicentenary we will be celebrating next year.

Citizenship and Immigration is listening!
