Building Citizenship welcomes and connects new citizens by hosting community citizenship ceremonies with roundtable discussions across Canada. This program is supported by a growing national network of diverse, passionate volunteers and our partner, Citizenship and Immigration Canada.
The Cultural Access Pass (CAP) is a gift for Canada’s newest citizens and their children, offering a year of free access to more than 1,000 Canadian places and spaces - from museums and historic sites to national and provincial parks - and discounts on travel to help new citizens explore. It's also the perfect way for Canada’s cultural attractions to connect with a new audience.
The LaFontaine-Baldwin Symposium is a signature event hosted across the country, showcasing leading thinkers such as His Highness the Aga Khan, Georges Erasmus, Beverley McLachlin, Louise Arbour, Siila Watt-Cloutier and, most recently, Shawn A-in-chut Atleo, National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations. Using a keynote address and roundtable discussion, the event creates an inspiring space, challenging all Canadians to become part of the national conversation on citizenship, democracy and the public good.
