Institute For Canadian Citizenship
Founded and co-chaired by The Rt. Hon. Adrienne Clarkson and John Ralston Saul, the Institute for Canadian Citizenship (ICC) is a national, non-profit organization that engages Canadians in citizenship through innovative programs, campaigns and partnerships designed to ensure new citizens are welcomed and included as equals, to create meaningful connections among all Canadian citizens, to foster a culture of active, engaged citizens and to celebrate what it means to be Canadian.
With a national network of over 550 volunteers, the ICC's Building Citizenship program organizes special citizenship ceremonies with unique roundtable discussions that encourage new and established Canadians to connect and share stories.
The Cultural Access Pass offers new citizens (and their children) the chance to visit over 1,000 attractions across Canada for free for a full year from the time they're sworn in. The program reaches 100% of new Canadians through citizenship ceremonies and tens of thousands of new citizens have registered and used their Cultural Access Pass.
Launched in 2016, 6 Degrees Citizen Space is a global forum and conversation on citizenship, immigration, inclusion, and diversity in the 21st century. Learn more about 6 Degrees here.
