Citizenship Ceremony 2

Records were officially broken today as Council hosted its biggest Citizenship Ceremony in history at Camden Civic Centre.

A total of 204 local residents became Australian Citizens at Camden’s first face-to-face Citizenship Ceremony since May 2021.

The new citizens also had the pleasure of pledging their commitment to their new country as Camden celebrated Australian Citizenship Day.

Mayor of Camden, Cr Therese Fedeli, said it was a special day for the new citizens and Camden Council.

“It is my pleasure to witness residents make the choice to become Australians and add to our beautiful and multicultural community and it was extra special with the history books being rewritten as well,” Cr Fedeli said.

“Our new citizens came from more than 41 different countries across the world with each of them having their own story in coming to Australia.

“I’d like to welcome and acknowledge the 204 valued members of our growing community and look forward to seeing them enjoy their lives in our beautiful area.”

Council hosted 14 virtual Citizenship Ceremonies this year, welcoming over 500 citizens to the Camden community.
