What is Toronto Newcomer Day?

First proclaimed in 2015, Toronto Newcomer Day is an annual event held in May that welcomes newcomers to Toronto, helps them understand and access a wide range of services, and celebrates their contributions to the city. The event features a number of activities including a formal stage program, a citizenship ceremony for new Canadians, tours of City Hall, a newcomer marketplace, and an information fair. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s event will be virtual to ensure the safety of all Toronto residents.
