Philippines Immigrants Happy to Become Citizens of Canada

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Shaira Oyando, a newly recognized Canadian, is excited to learn about Indigenous peoples’ history in Canada. She relocated to Canada five years ago, and in November of 2016, she and her family officially became Canadian citizens. The Government House hosted the ceremony where 20 newcomers were welcomed to the country.

Oyando said it was overwhelming and couldn’t explain the feelings she had when attending the ceremony. “It’s really a pleasure to be a Canadian citizen and to be getting all these rights and privileges from the country,” she said.

Relocating to Canada from The Philippines, Shaira said it is helpful to learn about the history of Canada. The Canadian Indigenous people are included in that history. Oyando is anxious to study the culture and learn “how they preserved the country before the immigrants came and how they also preserve that culture in modern times.”

Ryan Oyando, Shaira’s 16-year-old brother, agreed with his sister’s opinion about being a Canadian. He said, “It’s a new learning experience.” Ryan thinks it is important to study and learn how people can live together with the diverse culture and history in Canada, specifically speaking of the Indigenous culture.

One word of advice from Ryan to anyone considering becoming a Canadian citizen, “Learn about Canada, share your culture with them and have fun!” To be a part of this fantastic, diverse culture, contact Canadian Visa Expert for the requirements of becoming a Canadian citizen.[/vc_column_text][vc_basic_grid post_type=”post” max_items=”3″ grid_id=”vc_gid:1516261953053-e9742306-7061-6″ taxonomies=”24″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
