Regina – The province has announced some exciting news for new citizens.
Parks, Culture and Sport Minister, Mark Docherty, was on hand Wednesday morning to add 38 attractions to the Canadian Citizenship’s Cultural Access Pass program.
The initiative provides immigrants with free access to cultural places which Docherty said is an important addition to becoming a citizen.
“I think it’s all part of the cultural framework. You’re not really a true citizen unless you’re fully engaged in your community and understand what’s out there, that you can explore and learn about,” he added.
SaskParks, the Government House, and the Royal Saskatchewan Museum, including the T.rex Discovery Centre, are among attractions that new Canadians can access for free during their first year of citizenship.
More than 90,000 people across Canada have participated in the CAP program since it started in 2008.
