In the evening of November 1, 96 new immigrants were welcomed in the Canadian family at Rogers Centre as they stood in the centre field for reciting the "Oath of Citizenship" to kick off the start of the Toronto Argonauts Montreal Alouettes game. This event was led by Russ Jackson, member of the Order of Canada and the Canadian Hall of Fame. Taking part in the celebration, many of the 20,000 viewers also repeated the "Oath of Citizenship" along with  the new citizens to reaffirm their commitments and duties to Canada. This citizenship ceremony was hosted in partnership with Institute for Canadian Citizenship (ICC) and Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC).

Executive Chairman and CEO of Toronto Argonauts, Chris Rudge said, "This evening, 96 new citizens to our country took their Oath of Citizenship and thousands of Argos fans in the stands nearby reaffirmed their own citizenship, while standing on a Canadian football field and sharing in an experience that is uniquely ours. Through community programming and investment, our club has actively invited new Canadians to learn about a game, a team and a league that is part of the cultural fabric of our country. On behalf of our entire organization and our fans, I am very proud to welcome all of those who joined us tonight and I would like to thank our partners at both the Institute of Canadian Citizenship and Citizenship and Immigration of Canada for entrusting us to host."
