Cultural Access Pass
Cultural Access Pass has transitioned to a digital format, and all print version of the CAP has been discontinued as of July 17th.
Canoo, formerly known as the Cultural Access Pass program, is a mobile app offered by the Institute for Canadian Citizenship, an independent civil society organization, that provides new Canadian citizens with free admission to over 1400 museums, science centres, art galleries, parks, and historic sites across Canada.
New citizens can download the Canoo app and get free admission for themselves and up to four children, every time they visit, for 12 months from the date of their citizenship ceremony.
If new citizens do not want to download the app, the Institute of Canadian Citizenship (ICC) will directly send them the print version of the CAP. Please visit the Canoo Help site for more information.
