Access 2 Entertainment Program - Easter Seals Canada Access@Entertainment logo
Launched in December of 2004, the Access 2 Entertainment program seeks to offer more opportunities for people with disabilities to participate in recreational activities with an attendant, without added financial burden. It is also designed to raise awareness and help businesses provide quality customer service to customers with disabilities.

The Access 2 Card provides persons with a disability a personalized card printed with their name and the card’s five year expiry date. When going to their attraction of choice, they simply need to present the card along with a piece of ID (not required for cardholders who are minors), and their attendant will receive a free ticket. The Access 2 card is accepted at entertainment venues across Canada. Visit our venues section of this website to see where the card can be used in your community.

Being eligible for the DTC can open the door to other federal, provincial, or territorial programs such as the registered disability savings plan, the working income tax benefit, and the child disability benefit.
