Canoo (formerly Cultural Access Pass)

As of June 18, 2019, YHMA will no longer be distributing Cultural Access Passes. The Institute for Canadian Citizenship (ICC) has fully transitioned the Cultural Access Pass (CAP) to Canoo, a mobile app, and will no longer be doing large-scale printing of the CAP paper card. 

Canoo is a mobile app that helps new Canadian citizens celebrate their citizenship by providing free admission to over 1400 museums, science centres, art galleries, parks, and historic sites across Canada.

The app offers free admission for every new citizen and up to four children, every time they visit for the first year of citizenship. The Canoo app is available for free on the App Store and Google Play.

New Canadian citizens who are eligible for Canoo and do not have a smartphone can request a Canoo paper card by filling out an application on the ICC website. ICC will be printing and mailing Canoo cards out of their Toronto office. Please recycle any remaining Cultural Access Pass cards that you have in your possession.

Additional information can be found on the ICC Website.
