Alberta Parks, together with the Institute for Canadian Citizenship, supports new citizens to discover Canadian culture and Alberta's provincial parks with the mobile app Canoo. We invite you to get outside and make memories at nearly 500 parks across Alberta. Learn more and download Canoo here. Note: Canoo is formerly known as the Cultural Access Pass program.
Celebrate your new Canadian citizenship with a variety of experiences by using your Canoo app at the information desk in the following locations:
- Free admission to the Sikome Aquatic Centre for one adult and 4 children. (Not available due to COVID-19 facility closure in 2020 – please check back in 2021.)
- Free Áísínai'pi Rock Art Tour at Writing-on-Stone Provincial Park (National Historic Site).
- One free ski pass for new citizens and their family members at Canmore Nordic Centre Provincial Park.
- Free Family Dino Stomp Tour and admission to the Visitor Centre at Dinosaur Provincial Park (UNESCO World Heritage Site). Reservations are recommended. Phone 403-378-4344 to book the Family Dino Stomp Tour. To be connected toll-free in Alberta, dial 310-0000 followed by the number. From a cell phone, dial *310 (Rogers Wireless) or #310 (Bell and Telus) followed by the number.
