FREE ONTARIO FUN PASS: This summer, there is a lot to see and do right here in Ontario. And more than 1.5 million kids will get free admission to stay and play all summer long with the 2012 Fun Pass.
With over $185 in savings, the Fun Pass makes it more affordable for Ontario families to experience 21 different attractions. From the Ontario Science Centre in Toronto to the Fort Henry National Historic Site in Kingston and the Butterfly Conservatory in Niagara Falls, the Fun Pass offers plenty of family fun — all summer long.
The Fun Pass is valid from June 30 to Sept 3, 2012 and until Nov 2, 2012 for select agencies and attractions.
Most kids will receive their Fun Passes with their final report cards this month.
The Fun Pass provides school-age children with free admission to 21 Ontario attractions when accompanied by a paying adult or senior.
This year, Ontario is expanding the e-Fun Pass program to allow approximately 440,000 students in 20 school boards to access the Fun Pass online.
The Fun Pass also offers a $2 discount on a daily parking permit at Ontario Parks.
Now in its eighth year, the Fun Pass program is a collaborative effort among 12 government agencies and attractions and three ministries.
