The ROM and Citizenship and Immigration Canada hosted a citizenship ceremony during Citizenship Week on Monday, October 15, 2012, in the Samuel Hall/Currelly Gallery followed by a reception in Bronfman Hall. For the event, which was the first held at the ROM since the year 2000, the ROM and Citizenship and Immigration Canada delivered citizenship for 60 new Canadians.

When I was a kid I had a pretty strict bed time. For grades 3 through 5, bed time was somewhere around 8-9PM. Very rarely were exceptions made. About the only time I ever remember my mom letting me stay up was for one of my favourite tv shows, Paleoworld.
Hello, I’m Claire Healy, Associate Curator of Invertebrate Zoology here at the ROM. It’s almost that time again – Curator’s Corner is gearing up to bring you another opportunity to meet a curator (me!) and learn a bit more about the animals here at the museum, and the delightful organisms that I study.
