Canadian Citizenship or helping immigrants feel at homePosted by in blog
Last Tuesday, October 4th, the Globe and Mail published an article about a program that started 3 years ago in Toronto and that offers new Canadian citizens a 12-month “cultural access pass” to attractions nationwide, all of them at no charge.
The program is called CAP and managed by the Institute for Canadian Citizenship and is exploding in popularity – it now has enrolment rates of 80 citizens a day, with 1,000 attractions nationwide expected to be on board by year’s end. The program is now in place at more than 600 museums, galleries, parks and discovery centres in Nova Scotia, Quebec, Ontario, Alberta, B.C. and the Northwest Territories.
Information about the program is handed out during every citizenship ceremony nationwide.
New citizens have the possibility to learn more about Canada, to connect with Canadian culture and to embrace the diversity and the different cultures that make up Canada.
