Canada granted citizenship to 47 permanent residents of Canada in a September 2017 special ceremony. These new Canadian citizens immigrated from 25 different countries. Duane Omeir, a native of Nicaragua, chose to begin this journey of immigration in 2000 while on a business trip to Ottawa. He was attracted to the freedom and safety he felt while there. Speaking of his former land, Omeir said, “…it is not as safe…and people are welcomed to Parliament Hill here.” To share in the benefits of living in this country, contact Canadian Visa Expert for information on immigrating to Canada.
