"A truly great gift to showcase Canada to its newest inhabitants, the Cultural Access Pass has opened my eyes to the hidden gems that are a part of it." - Joseph P.
A gift to each Canadian citizen during their first year of citizenship, the Cultural Access Pass provides complimentary admission to more than 1000 of Canada's cultural treasures from coast-to-coast-to-coast. The Cultural Access Pass creates opportunities for Canada's newest citizens to discover our rich cultural history, world-renowned artworks, historical figures and stunning parks.
"Incredible experience that shouldn't be missed for any new Canadian. It's a crash course in why Canada is the best country in the world!" - Darshan H.
"Fantastic opportunity ... to learn more about their new country, and take the responsibility of being an active citizen." — CAP Member
