Records were officially broken earlier this week as Camden Council hosted its biggest Citizenship Ceremony ever!

204 local residents became Australian Citizens at Camden’s first face-to-face Citizenship Ceremony since May 2021 at the Civic Centre.

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

“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,” Mayor of Camden Therese Fedeli said.

“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.”

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