“This is a great honor for Windsor,” said Mayor Drew Dilkens. “I am delighted that your honor can join us on Canada Day to take part in our celebrations. It will be especially memorable for those who become Canadians. “

Dowdeswell will host the morning citizenship ceremony at the family water park, participate in the Canada Day Parade, visit Francophone youth at Place Concorde, and more.

Further details on her visit to Windsor will be announced shortly.

Dowdeswell, who was born in Northern Ireland before moving to rural Saskatchewan with her parents in 1947, was a teacher and university lecturer before holding a number of government positions, including with the United Nations Environment Program in Nairobi, Kenya.
