Mohawk is proud to be the first college in Ontario to be a chapter of the Institute for Canadian Citizenship. Twice a year, Mohawk hosts Roundtable Discussions, an official Citizenship Swearing In Ceremony in the College's McIntyre Theatre and a Reception.  Mohawk also supports new Canadians through innovative bridging and enhanced language training programs.
