Buggy and mostly worthless, but the idea is good
I visited some museums and science centres for free, which otherwise I would never even have thought to visit, let alone pay money for.
Displaying provincial parks in the app is really redundant because they are free anyways.
The whole app completely stopped displaying anything and giving any access after about half a year of use; deleting and reinstalling it seemed to help.
Very upset and disappointed with the Canoo app
For my yearly vacation I went a road trip from BC to Banff. I was very excited because I had my citizenship gift (free pass) that is valid for ONE year. When I arrived to the entrance of Jasper city, I opened my cellphone surprised that was NO connection and the Canoo app didn’t work, so as a result, I paid the fees. However, I was very shocked that I couldn’t use my free pass gift.
Unfortunately the same situation happened in Banff City No connection and the app didn’t work, so I paid the fees again. Literally, I’m extremely disappointed with I was unable to enjoy my gift that is going to be expire next month and also with very poor service of the Canoo app. I recommend to rethink about the app and find a new way to make the new citizens happy with there gifts.

Hi MunichR, thank you for your feedback. I'm so sorry that you had that experience. The Canoo app was specifically designed to work without data nor WiFi in order to accommodate parks like Jasper and Banff, so I am very surprised to hear that. Although the app may not load photos, the "My card" function should have worked regardless. Have you contacted us through our Help Centre about this issue? If you haven't yet, I encourage you to do so, and provide your phone type and operating system so we can provide this feedback to our developers. Our Help Centre is canoo.zendesk.com. Thank you, Anja, Canoo Support
What I don’t understand is that you need to be 18 years and over because I got my citizenship this year and I can’t use Canoo and the free admission it’s really disappointing if it where for only 18 years or older then why did we even get the Canoo invite? Especially when the app says 4+ to download.
Except for when you don’t have someone over 18 to register an account. That then makes Canoo not applicable for any families under 18 to get its benefits. Where as families with someone of 18 years can use it. Ok so what I am getting is Canoo is not for anyone to have if they are not 18 when they get their citizenship.

Hi there! That's a great question. The Canoo app requires all account holders to be 18 years of age or older due to personal information we require to create the account. For legal reasons, we cannot collect and store the personal information of minors (anyone under the age of 18). Luckily, each Canoo member can bring up to 4 children/youth (anyone under 18) along with them for free every time they visit! I hope that helps, and my apologies for the late reply to your question. Thanks, Anja, Canoo's Membership Officer
