The Cultural Access Pass
The Institute for Canadian Citizenship (ICC) in partnership with the Canadian Museums Association (CMA) have announced the expansion of the Cultural Access Pass (CAP) program to 12 galleries and museums in the National Capital Region.
The Cultural Access Pass was launched in April 2008 in the Greater Toronto Area with six galleries and museums. Twenty-three museums and galleries in the GTA are now participating in the program, along with nine museums and galleries in the Kitchener and Waterloo region and four in Montreal. New citizens are eligible for free admission for a full year from the date they are sworn in as Canadians.
The ICC is a national, non-profit organization founded and co-chaired by the Right Honourable Adrienne Clarkson and John Ralston Saul dedicated to engaging Canadians about citizenship. www.icc-icc.ca
