The Citizen’s Card gives you access to the library and free activities. You also need it to sign up at cultural and sports organizations, and you’ll get special rates when you present it.
Sports and cultural activities
The Citizen’s Card is free of charge and must be presented for everyone aged two years or older signing up for swimming classes, among other things. It also entitles you to a citizen’s discount when signing up with various cultural and sports organizations, using the boat launch at Parc Esther-Blondin or buying tickets to shows.
You’ll need to have the card with you to have access to free swimming, skating and activities in gymnasium.
In addition, it enables you to borrow books and other documents at the municipal library.
How to get your card
The card is valid for two years. You can get one at these locations:
- Municipal library
- Recreation and Culture Department
3093 de la Gare, suite B-230
Be sure to bring proof of residence with photo or two proofs without photo (driver’s licence, health insurance card, utility bill, property tax bill, etc.).
Due to the pandemic and the closure of municipal buildings, expiring citizen cards will be automatically extended until September 15, 2020. Citizens who do not have a card and who would like to access certain online services or register for day camps can create their account on this platform. Electronic proof of residence will be required.
