Three Syrian Families Sworn in as Canadian Citizens in the Town of New Glasgow

This week a very special celebration took place in the Town of New Glasgow’s Council Chambers as three Syrian families in our community were sworn in as Canadian Citizens.  

Pictured to the left is Fadi  Alibrahim, Douaa Dakhil and their children, Hamza, Abdullha and Toqaa Alibrahim.  Douaa was a White Helmet and a member of the Civil Defense and had completed two years of university in Syria to become a teacher before they left Syria for Jordan. Douaa's husband, Fadi, was an archaeologist in Syria. They currently reside in New Glasgow where their two youngest children were born.

Pictured in the middle is Nour Al Refai and her girls Tasnim, Ansam, and Obaida. Nour’s husband Mohammad Kharoub (not pictured), who was also a white helmet, applied for citizenship after Nour and has since passed the test and will soon take the Oath of Citizenship.

Pictured to the right is Mohammad Alzazour, his wife Shrouk Alrawashdeh, and their three children Nizar, Maiss, and Murad. Mohammad was a White Helmet and a member of the Civil Defense, and was a teacher in Syria. He and his family all reside in New Glasgow, and Mohammad works for the Town of New Glasgow doing maintenance.

On behalf of the Mayor Council, CAO, and staff of the Town of New Glasgow, we congratulate these families on officially getting their citizenship and are very happy to have them in our community.
