The ICC is a national, non-profit organization that engages Canadians in active citizenship through innovative programs, campaigns and partnerships designed to ensure new citizens are welcomed and included as equals, create meaningful connections among all Canadians, foster a culture of engaged citizens and celebrate what it means to be Canadian.
The ICC’s 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, discovery centres and natural parks across Canada. The program encourages new citizens to curate their own Canadian experience in their first year of citizenship, opening doors to Canadian culture.
