Institute for Canadian Citizenship
VIA Rail Canada and the Institute for Canadian Citizenship (ICC) are collaborating to provide new Canadian citizens who are members of the ICC’s Cultural Access Pass (CAP) program a one-time, exclusive travel offer: a 50% discount on the lowest available fare, any class, one way or round trip, no blackout periods, for CAP members and up to four of their minor dependent children. The addition of this significant travel offer from VIA Rail to the CAP program provides another opportunity for new Canadians to engage with their country and discover many of its unique attractions.
The Cultural Access Pass program fosters inclusion, introducing our country’s newest citizens to Canadian culture and experiences by providing them (and their children) a year of free access to more than 1,000 Canadian attractions from museums and historic sites to national and provincial parks. The ICC is supported by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC).
