Cultural Access Pass

The Cultural Access Pass (CAP) offers new citizens the opportunity to enjoy the Canadian cultural experience through complimentary access to more than 1,000 participating attractions, galleries, museums and discovery centres across Canada. The program encourages new citizens to curate their own Canadian experience in their first year of citizenship, opening doors to Canadian culture with the intent of generating a sense of belong and engagement in their communities, and in Canada as a whole. For CAP’s participating attractions, the program is an opportunity to invite and engage a key group in the Canadian mosaic: a new Canadian citizen.
