Student prices for admission and transport

Hi all,

As title, I've come across many attractions which offer a lower student price for admission. I would like know what kind of student ID is usually required. I saw some websites requesting for ISIC card, but I do not have one right now, so is the student card from universities allowed to be used as a valid proof? [out-of-province university in BC ]

Thanks in advance!

If the attraction requests an isic card then that's the card they want, they usually have worked out an arrangement to provide the discount with isic....I'd get the isic card through your university, I remember it being quite easy to do so...

For the TTC, you must have a TTC Student ID card in order to receive student fare pricing. I expect this is only for residents of the city.


Some attractions may accept your out of province institutional ID card - the ROM will, and likely the AGO will as well. CN Tower does not have student rates.

Additionally, many cultural attractions, such as the AGO or ROM have free/reduced admission some nights of the week.

I have an Ontario student card and have managed to get discounts at most Toronto attractions, so I suspect they would accept the BC student cards as well. But as another poster mentioned some places don't have student discounts at all. Also look into special nights with discounted rates. I know the ROM used to be free/heavily discounted one afternoon/evening a week
