Nanaimo city council held its annual welcoming ceremony for people who have recently arrived in Canada and made Nanaimo their place of residence – people like Hayden Fu, second left, and Jen Zhou, who came to Canada in 2005 and became citizens in 2011. Their child, Jayden, was born in Nanaimo.

The family got its picture taken at the ceremony with Staff Sgt. John Blaase, left, and Cpl. Dave Boyce, right.
