Accessibility @ PRPS

  • PRPS will be held at the Multipurpose Room in the University Services Building at Quest University Canada. The Multipurpose Room is a very large room on the bottom floor of the University Services Building.

  • Accessible parking is available 120m from the University Services Building. The main floor of the University Services Building has two double-door entrances, one of which has button-activated doors.

  • Two multi-stall washrooms are on the same floor as the MPR with accessible stalls in each. These washrooms are usually gendered, however they will have signs indicating that they can be used by anyone of any gender during the event. Two single-stall accessible non-gendered washrooms are one floor above the MPR, and can be accessed by stairs or elevator. On the main floor of the University Services building, two floors above the MPR, there are two gendered multi-stall washrooms with accessible stalls and one (permanently) non-gendered multi-stall washroom with an accessible stall.

  • There is fluorescent lighting in the Multipurpose Room and throughout the University Services Building.

  • All speakers at PRPS, including audience members asking questions, will be using microphones.

  • Large-print programs will be available at the registration table. Print out versions of speaker presentation slides can be made available upon request (please include this request in the last box below).

  • There will be a play area available with some toys and colouring books etc. where you can take your children if they need a break.

  • We ask those attending PRPS to refrain from wearing scented products in order to help us create a scent-reduced space.
    The event will be recorded and photographs will be taken. There will be no flash photography.
    Audience chairs are sturdy and do not have arm rests.
    We will have at least one emotional support person available all day. Due to space constraints, we do not have a quiet room available nearby the Multipurpose Room. However, event organizers and volunteers can direct you to quieter and more private areas if you are unfamiliar with the Quest campus. 

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about accessibility, please email rowan.thillayekerr@questu.ca or sahar.thomson@questu.ca. Accessibility is an utmost priority at this event and we will do whatever we can do ensure anyone who wishes to participate in this event is included.
