The Cultural Access Pass was designed to open doors to Canadian culture and allow new Canadians to choose their own cultural experiences in their first year of citizenship.

Your pass gives you free access to many attractions right here in Nova Scotia, including:

  • Art Gallery of Nova Scotia
  • Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21
  • Halifax Citadel National Historic Site
  • Maritime Museum of the Atlantic
  • Nova Scotia Museum of Natural History 

Of course, your pass also gets you into attractions across the whole country: explore an interactive map of attractions.
