The Institute for Canadian Citizenship (ICC) is a national, non-profit charity that helps accelerate new citizens’ integration into Canadian life through original programs, collaborations and unique volunteer opportunities. ICC is seeking to rebuild its volunteer committee in Winnipeg.
ICC is currently looking for volunteers to be part of the ‘building citizenship program’ that welcomes and celebrates over 1,500 new citizens each year who choose to officially call Canada their home. The volunteer program relies on a national network of volunteers to organize special community citizenship ceremonies with unique roundtable discussions. The volunteers are crucial to running this program and in helping to welcome new Canadians on the day they become citizens.
This is an opportunity for those interested to get involved in welcoming new citizens in your country.
- Create opportunities for new citizens to share their unique perspectives.
- Explore and advance the Canadian model of inclusion.
- Work with members of your community who share your interest in welcoming new citizens and organize Building Citizenship community citizenship ceremonies.
- Participate in a Building Citizenship community citizenship ceremony by facilitating roundtable discussions with new citizens
