CANADA WELCOMES NEW CITIZENS IN SKY-HIGH CEREMONY. Six new Canadians take their oath of citizenship while harnessed on the CN Tower's "Edgewalk". in Toronto, Canada, on Oct 10, 2018. Suspended more than 300 metres above downtown Toronto, six new Canadians took the oath of citizenship from the edge of one of the world's tallest structures. Canadian Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen administered the oath to the new citizens, hailing from six different countries, as they were held in cables off a 116-storey-high platform known as the EdgeWalk, on the side of the landmark CN Tower. The tower, which soars 553 metres, has hosted citizenship ceremonies before, but not one from such breathless heights, according to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada. Canada, which prides itself on the country's multiculturalism, accepted more than 270,000 new immigrants in 2017.
