Free activities for 9,000 Montreal families
The Montreal Biodôme is one of the Space for Life museums.
Once again this year, 9,000 low-income Montreal families will have free access to one of the Space for Life institutions. The City of Montreal will offer them tickets to the Biodôme, the Botanical Garden, the Insectarium, the Biosphere or the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium.
Tickets for La Ronde as well as transit passes from the Société de transport de Montréal (STM) will also be distributed to community organizations serving young people.
Carried out as part of Quebec Family Week for more than 20 years, this initiative allows the City of Montreal to reach low-income families who do not have the means to afford a admission to one of these establishments.
For the Vice-President of the Executive Committee and responsible for Space for Life, Caroline Bourgeois, it is essential to ensure accessibility to Space for Life museums. life to all Montreal families. “The five establishments are a considerable wealth for our metropolis and we must ensure that the entire population can visit them without constraint,” she underlined.
All passes will be distributed through the 19 boroughs and the Diversity and Social Inclusion Department (SDIS) of the City of Montreal. They will be responsible for giving them to organizations working with families in their area, including seniors.
Families wishing to obtain these free tickets can contact their borough.
