Becoming Canadian

About Becoming Canadian

A new CBC digital project and television series telling the incredible stories of our country's newest citizens.

Becoming Canadian: The Struggle, Drama, The Dream

Every year at ceremonies across the country over 200,000 people take the Oath of Citizenship and officially become Canadian citizens. Each one of them has a unique story of struggle and triumph. 

Becoming Canadian tells the incredible stories of our newest citizens, revealing the remarkable paths that lead to the life-changing moment of finally becoming Canadian. 

You'll meet these new Canadians and see their stories throughout the year online, culminating in a week-long, six-part television series premiering on CBC television on June 26.
