Canoo

Canoo logo

Canoo (formerly known as the Cultural Access Pass program) is a mobile app that helps new Canadian citizens celebrate their citizenship by providing free admission to over 1,400 museums, science centres, art galleries, parks, and historic sites across Canada.

Canoo members get a complimentary daily vehicle permit at most operating provincial parks.

Some provincial parks will require Canoo members to obtain a daily vehicle permit in advance of every visit to secure a spot. Please check the park listing on the Canoo app to find out if there are special instructions before you visit a park.

  1. When you arrive at a participating Ontario Provincial Park, tap My Card on the navigation menu on the bottom of the screen.
  2. Tell Ontario Parks staff that you are a Canoo member and ask for the Canoo venue code.
  3. Enter the 4-digit venue code.
  4. Tap Get Canoo card.
  5. Show the staff your Canoo card screen along with a piece of government-issued photo ID.
  6. Get free, day use entry for everyone in your vehicle. Please note that other fees may still apply.

Did you know you can borrow a daily vehicle permit free of charge from your local library? Get in touch with your library to find out more.
