Olympic Hopeful Kaitlyn Weaver Becomes Canadian Citizen

Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Minister Jason Kenney today welcomed Olympic hopeful Kaitlyn Weaver as a Canadian citizen at a ceremony in Kitchener, Ontario.  “On behalf of the Government of Canada, I am proud to welcome Kaitlyn Weaver as a Canadian,” Minister Kenney said. “Our citizenship is one of the most valuable things we can possess. Ms Weaver has made, and will continue to make, an exceptional contribution to Canada, and I am very pleased to be able to honour her commitment.”

The Citizenship Act contains a special provision that allows the Governor in Council, on the recommendation of the Minister, to reward services of an exceptional value to Canada by issuing a grant of citizenship.

Kaitlyn Weaver (born April 12, 1989 in Houston, Texas and living in Canada since 2006) is an American ice dancer who currently represents Canada internationally. With partner Andrew Poje, she is the 2008 Canadian national silver medalist and 2007 World Junior bronze medalist.

Weaver will now be eligible to represent Canada at the upcoming Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver, 2010.
