Bruce Museum Free to New Canadians

Bruce County | by Liny Lamberink  

Bruce County Museum added to National Cultural Access Pass program.

New Canadian residents can take a trip to the Bruce County Museum and Cultural Centre, free of charge.

Director Cathy McGirr says they're now part of the national Cultural Access Pass (CAP) program, offered through the Institute for Canadian Citizenship.

The pass allows free access to more than 1,200 cultural attractions across the country for a year, and is available to newcomers who have received their Canadian citizenship.

It includes the Science Centre, the Gardiner Museum, and the Grand Theatre.

Locally, McGirr says new Canadians in Bruce County can learn a lot about the region by visiting the museum.

She says "we have a lot to offer in terms of history of the county, but also through programming and events and exhibitions."

McGirr also says moving to a new country is overwhelming, but visiting the museum is a good way to learn what services are available.

She says the pass allows access for one individual and up to four dependent children.

The Museum and Cultural Centre is also a CAP pick-up location for new registrants.
