Important Update in response to COVID-19 –
Canada Pride Citation Presentation Ceremonies:
Pride Citation presentation ceremonies are not able to be held until late 2020
at the earliest due to Covid-19 and the requirement for physical distancing
recommended by public health authorities. The Government of Canada (“Canada”)
has directed that all reasonable measures must be taken to stem the spreading
of this virus, and the safety of claimants and that of all other Canadians must
take priority at this time.
Canada is committed to hold presentation ceremonies for those eligible class
members who selected and wish to attend a presentation ceremony, once it is
safe to do so. Canada will ensure that the ceremonies reflect the dignity
and circumstance that recognize the wrong and hurt that was caused to claimants
when they served in uniform or in the federal public service.
In the meantime, in
the coming weeks Canada Pride Citations will be mailed to eligible claimants
who have requested Canada Pride Citations, including those who requested to
attend in-person ceremonies, in order that they may have their citations as
soon as possible in advance of the ceremonies yet to be scheduled.
We thank you for your
patience and understanding during this challenging time for all Canadians.
