Canada to Ban Niqabs During Citizenship Ceremony

Canada has introduced new legislation that will require all Canadian citizenship applicants to show their face while taking the oath of citizenship. The Oath of Citizenship Act would require all applicants to take the oath of citizenship “aloud and with face uncovered” in a way that others can verify. However, the legislation might not become law, as Parliament is breaking for summer recess and won’t sit again until after the election.
