Are you a Canadian citizen? Did you receive your citizenship within the last 365 days? Are you 18 years of age or older?
If you answered ‘yes’ to all three questions, then you are eligible for a Cultural Access Pass (CAP).
The CAP is a program run by the Institute for Canadian Citizenship (ICC), a national, non-profit charity.
The pass provides complimentary admission to more than 1,000 of Canada's cultural treasures coast-to-coast-to-coast, from museums to science centres to parks.
The CAP creates opportunities for Canada's newest citizens to discover the country’s rich cultural history, world-renowned artworks, historical figures, and great outdoors.
The ICC’s mission is to help new citizens integrate into Canadian life through programs, collaborations, and volunteer opportunities.
Each eligible adult should register for the individual CAP membership card. Children 17 years of age or younger can participate in the program by accompanying a CAP member who is the child’s parent.
Joining CAP is free. The pass is valid for one year from the date you are sworn in as a citizen, not the date you register for the program.
You can use your CAP card more than once. Visit as many different CAP attractions as you want or visit the same CAP attraction multiple times and on separate days until your CAP expires.
